Bear Flag Fish Co. is the seafood wonderland we all long for on idle summer days, a fish market-cum-restaurant where brilliant slabs of tuna glint like rubies and the spindrift of crashing waves hangs in the air.

I see you queasily watching college football's latest financial collapse. I feel that glint of recognition as you witness the impending NCAA-led destruction of Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers. I know you are nodding your head and thinking the same thing. For Bush's sake, wouldn't this all be a lot simpler if colleges just started paying their athletes?
