This morning's Strib featured a bizarre interview
with the unkempt motorcycle-riding Vikings mascot Ragnar that read like a Katherine "Rotary rocks!" Kersten column. Ragnar believes the Vikings are part of a society that celebrates scandalous TV shows such as "Sex and the City" and "The Simpsons
," and didn't punish Bill Clinton for those West Wing BJs. "I believe as a country we've gotten away from abstinence," bemoaned Ragnar. One wonders whether the righteous mascot, who spends his weekdays as an assistant dean of students at Hopkins High School, is at all concerned about the NFL's promoting violence
to its all-ages audience.
