  1. ...and show us how small some peole have become

  2. Just watched the clip from ADRENALIN (on Racer.com), an upcoming film, which features, at least for part of it, some of Alex Zanardi's remarkable story. A first class human, husband, father and still a world class athlete and champion. For him, the word "Hero" isn't enough. Unfortunately, the current ICS lacks such compelling personalities to drive fan interest. Also unfortunately, some indy defenders seem to take pleasure in using his nearly fatal injuries to try to advance their tired agenda. Very Dispicable , but maybe we can hope for a new personality that has Alex's character and humanity to emerge, and show us what small people some have become.

  3. Jim you are my hero. Shut the nonsense down!
