I meant for the trash bin story below to be about a number of topics, but got carried away on Henry Standing Bear. One other topic I wanted to let our commenters tear apart was New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft getting caught up in a prostitution and human trafficking scandal. His only offense is using the services of a prostitute, a misdemenaor. (That’s yet another topic … men use prostitutes because they want sex without all of the accompanying nonsense like long-term commitment and profession of eternal love. In my perfect world, it would be legal.) Read about Mr. Kraft here.
I am getting a Cosby feel about this story, a powerful man being burned at the stake as part of a larger project. Generally speaking, such men as Kraft do not get caught with their pants down. If there is a prostitution bust and he was caught up in it, he would be quietly ushered out the back door. Thus when I heard about this story, my first thought was that the long-running New England Patriots dynasty is at an end, and this is the signal. That is all I can make of it.
Anyone have better insight? Better said, all of you with better insight, please chime in.
