It is incredibly convenient for observers to chalk up all complaints of a sexual nature as examples of sour grapes, and baseless in legitimacy. Even in the Duke Lacrosse team case, the bottom line is that no matter what did or did not happen with the strippers, the fact is that a group of individuals who have the privilege of competing for their university on a Division I sports team of national repute, held a party where underage drinking was going on AND engaged the paid for services of two strippers.

The popped corn has a good flavor with or without added salt and butter.
