But isn't providing more government info to the public better than providing less info ?
Have you ever looked at it?

I am so sorry. We have a history of blood cancers in my Mom's side of the family, but it has hit us at a later age. Losing someone young is tougher.  My condolences to your wife.

FIFY. Played more for the Eagles than any other team he played for. Very sad. Only 73. Makes remember when the Cowboys tried to get his kicking shoe banned.

His best-known field goal came with the Saints, so that’s good enough for me to say former Saints kicker.

He did end retiring in that area also.  Just saying he was well traveled and kicked for 5 teams in 11 years. Only two in NO.

Does Tom Dempsey still have the record for the longest NFL fieldgoal ?

Matt Prater kicked a 64-yarder a few years ago. That’s now the record.

Meanwhile,  Bobby Mitchell, the Redskins' first black player, has died.
