They're building a big stage in Nashville- - - -

In a few days, Lower Broadway down by the Cumberland river is going to host a big event.  Dozens of young men will be walked across that stage, and a bunch of rich old men will spend tons of money for the privilege of controlling their lives, sometimes for years to come.  These days, that's called the "NFL Draft".   Didn't basically the same process go by a different name a couple of centuries ago?  The only real difference I can see is that the young men back then were fresh off the boat from Africa- - - - -not their descendants, several generations removed!

    they are there by choice, not like their ancestors, plus the price paid for each of them will go in their pockets :)

    I guess selling oneself is OK- - - - -just as long as the price is right.  Maybe that's what all of us do, anyway- - - - - -some just have a lower price tag than a shaved Sasquatch!

    Well if you don't have anything to sell, life can be hard and cruel. Minimum wage just don't cut the mustard.
