Sondheimer doesn't contradict what inflagrantedelicto, but the tone of the message seems a bit lighter, indicating that it is possible Ethan might come back this season, or might not. Again, good luck to the kid. He's still got another year of HS Football after this one, and he might be wise to wait 'til then to make his comeback, instead of risking coming back too early, just so he can play a couple of games as a junior. Risk to reward ratio is too high IMHO.
Things under Obama got a lot worse before they started to get better – and they only started to get better after the GOP took over half of Congress and put the brakes on spending.
