Dear Abby ...

To say we are disappointed by your recent revelations & behaviors would be understating reality. For many years, we actually believed that you were a true role model, a relative rarity among today's athletes. Over that time, you repeatedly positioned yourself as the voice of reason within the world of sports which is too often out-of-control in multiple ways. Sadly, we bought your phony image hook, line & sinker!

Of course, we know you are "only human" and as such are entitled to make mistakes. However, it has always been our position that those like you who drink & then drive have consciously chosen to BREAK THE LAW & POTENTIALLY ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF OTHERS they share the road with. Anyone who has EVER studied NYS traffic laws, taken driver's education or any written driver's test in this state is well aware of the laws regarding driving under the influence. THERE IS NO EXCUSE, EVER.

Worse yet, you waited until today to "come clean" about your lengthy history as a drug and alcohol abuser via the media. How opportunistic for you to time the release of this news just before you begin signing books in the city you used to call "home!" We couldn't expect you to gracefully admit to and apologize for the wrongs you've done and the false image you portrayed and then quietly cancel your self-promotional schedule without filling your wallet off your loyal fan base, now could we?

We're sorry, but we're not buying what you are selling any more. As they say, "Fool me once, shame on you ... "
