Remember last year when the plucky and courageous South African was shopped as a hero on TV for running in the Olympics using carbon prosthetics in place of his missing lower limbs.
Oscar Pistorius, so authorities now say, is just another woman beater who elevated himself to woman killer with the baseball bat to the head culminating in the shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp....Ms. Steenkamp's death is catnip to the tabloids as she was a stunning model and ironically an advocate for the cause of violence against women.
The Blade Runner is now the blade gunner, charged with premeditate murder and the papers...at least the ones people still read...are festooned with her photos.
Like A-Rod and Bonds, various NBA and NFL thugs, philandering golfers and certain bicyclists, the athletics-media cabal continues to sell human interest stories that inspire and often disappoint.
As for the Blade Runner, how was this fairy tale ever going to work ?
