    Once I was an idealist, one who followed the cries of justice heard from the lesser philosophers, politicians, professors, and the like. Then I woke up and realized no one cares about justice. All we care about is getting our slice of the pie. We're really like squabbling kids. Demands for justice like the ones we see from the USC profs require us who are guilty of wrongdoing (perhaps going to a bowl game undeservedingly) to suffer for our misdeeds and unwarranted rewards. Today many of us claim to be victims because we are dissatisfied with our social status, our income, or our lot in life, but even if we are victims of serious injustice, we probably are guilty of committing injustice as well. If we are genuinely committed to justice, we ought to wish that the consequences of all the wrong we have done should fall solely on ourselves, not on others. That would be just. It does not take much reflection for us to realize that we do not really want true justice, and indeed we fear it. As has been stated here time and again, where would the outcry be had USC taken LSU's spot, which almost really happened? Can you hear these spoiled children who cry for justice crying for us, demanding that the nation look at LSU as the "victims" of the injust BCS system? Damn those who cheapen the word justice.
