They dont call him Iron Mike for nothing...

I forgot to mention this before so I'll do it quickly.  Apparently Mike Tyson, being heavily in debt (to the tune of around $40 Mil), his boxing career in shambles, has decided that he needs to make some money the hard way.  Mr. Tyson will soon be doing PORN!  At first, like many of you I found this funny, hilarious even.  But even as mirth and merriment was to spill forth from my mouth, I realized just how sad this is.  How absolutely tragic it is that this man has turned to selling his body after abusing it in the ring.  I cant imagine the loneliness or the fear or desperation in Tyson's heart.  Thats when I stopped laughing and tried not to sick up in the car.  Somethings just arent that funny, when you really think about it.

Yes, it is quite sad. There is this book called "I know how the red clay feels" and it is a collection of writings in various forms, essays, poems, short stories...and one of them is really about how Mike came up, the type of foundation he was (or wasnt given) and it put him in a whole new light. He has some serious emotional problems, and people have manipulated him for most of his life. He illustrates a diachotomy of both humanity and inhumanity. Sad indeed.
