    Thanks Kris. Interesting, though highly depressing, information in that. I love the last paragraph. I won’t quote it here since I’d rather people read the entire article.

    Thanks for the pointer to Cage Match. A direct link to your article is here.

    I hope many of your readers will visit CM since you post so often. Nice job BTW as Guest Moderator Of The Week!

    [Ed. Fixed link. There are also three links to cagematch in my original post here. One to the article, one to Cagematch in general, and one to the GMOTW category. Thanks for the compliment.]
