1)It is absolutely not true that before 9/11 you could walk into any office building and go up to any floor with a big ass bag and not be checked. 2) The opinions on accelerating the time frame for getting SPORTS up and running again was when that ridiculous 1 million-person mortality estimate was reduced down to around 60,000 about a week and a half ago. 3) It's a myth that Las Vegas is shut down. You can go online right now and get hotel rooms on the strip. 4) How in the hell, in realistic terms, would the cancellation of the college football season "disproportionately affect female athletes"? There is no reason to believe that the benefits cited by the guest cannot be attained any other way or that they necessarily have been part of women's athletics to any great extent to begin with. The numbers don't even include football when it comes to the equation of how many male athletes there are in relation to female athletes. Many more males would be affected in terms of pure numbers than there would be a females. This is all aside from the number of male sports that were eliminated to be able to create some of these women sports. A considerable number of universities lost baseball and wrestling teams out of mandated equity that was part of Title IX. If, indeed, female athletes would be disproportionately affected, maybe that's actually more of a market correction than anything else.
