Man Appeal

Last week, Chris Peck, the The Commercial Appeal's lushly mustached editor, wrote a nerdy little sports column about the economics of college athletics. His second and third sentences: "Women, you may be tempted to stop reading this now. Men, you know what I'm talking about." At least he didn't redirect female sports fans to a soothing essay on the importance of proper grooming.
