The Benefit of the Doubt

I've been thinking about my hard stance in regards to Michael Vick and his return to the National Football League. I think that I am going to give him a short term benefit of the doubt to see if he really has changed his spots or whether he said the right things to get his ass a big paycheck in the NFL again.

If its the former and he really does speak out against animal abuse and really work hard to undo some of the egregious harm he's inflicted on animals then I will forgive him. If it becomes apparent that it is the latter and he really couldn't give a damn then I'll go back to the pitchforks and torches and fervent prayers for a career ending injury.

But for now, I'm going to adopt a wait and see because the proof, as they say, is in the pudding and I'm curious to see what kind of pudding he'll make.
