"So the Shepherdstown caller thinks that when our new president takes office, it should be against the law to criticize him? Of all the strange things I've read in this column, this has to be the most ridiculous. Doesn't anyone understand our basic freedoms anymore, and how critical they are to this great nation? Did you ever hear of freedom of speech? We have a Constitution that is precious, and unless Americans start learning how important it is to safeguard our freedoms, I fear for our future.

The monkey's name was Jocko Flocko and with him, Tim Flock was in for the ride of his life. A full-time pet and a part-time passenger for eight races during Flock's 1953 Grand National (the forerunner to NASCAR stock-car racing) season, Jocko wriggled out of his collar during an event at the former Charlotte, N.C., Speedway. The tiny critter jumped behind Flock, grabbed him by the neck at speed and forced a costly pit stop, thus ending the monkey's brief racing career. Flock would later complain that the mishap cost him about $750, the difference between finishing second and third back then.

Commentary Like many Americans, I had paid some, but not much, attention to the motorsport known as NASCAR - until I learned there was cheating, lying and deceit involved. This changes everything. It's like, no one ever paid any attention to Robert Hanssen before they learned he was selling lists of the Pentagon's favorite restaurants to the Reds. Cheating in NASCAR? We expect that behavior in Major League baseball, but not here. Actually in NASCAR, I'm told, that's not completely true.

I remember the first and only time I met Benny Parsons. It was in a smoke-choked media room that was too small to handle the growing number of journalists who were descending upon Indianapolis, Ind., to cover the Brickyard 400 race. It was the late 1990s, and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) circuit was becoming more popular, and fast. Slick, media-savvy drivers such as Jeff Gordon were drawing crowds with their California good looks. And Benny Parsons - one of the last good ol' boys and as un-California as they came - was loving every minute of it. As the door swung open on that media center one broiling Sunday morning, the extra-large Parsons made sure to make his presence known in a big way. "Well," he bellowed as he made his way through the fog of cigarette smoke and tap-tap-tapping of computer keyboards, "it sure as hell is good to see so many new faces around here!

The PGA Tour might try to think ahead of time how it is going to acclimate its viewers with the changes being made beginning in January. Commissioner Tim Finchem and his office cronies must have been taking officials of NASCAR to dinner quite extensively in order to come up with the new concept, equivalent to racing's Nextel Cup. Being ballyhooed as the "new era in golf," the FedEx Cup series will explode onto the scene in January and run...

ยท Commentary I am crushed. Absolutely crushed. Once again, someone has hit upon an idea that I - a man who is to brilliant ideas what Star Magazine is to photos of stretch marks - clearly should have come up with on my own: NASCAR romance novels. It was the second race-related defeat for me in a week. On Wednesday, I noticed the YouTube set had beaten me to something else I should have thought of first, specifically power tool drag racing. Basically, you set up two, 60-foot aluminum troughs and place a belt sander in each one, and then - well, never mind.

Looking back, perhaps those students at Enumclaw High School in Washington State knew a little more than the rest of the world. Somehow, it seems, it was easy to spot the curly haired kid with the radiant smile. And it wasn't just because he liked fast cars, greasy garages and spending his weekends on dirt tracks across the United States upper northwest. Kasey Kahne had something intangible. And when his classmates voted him the most likely to succeed after graduation, well, the kid took it to heart.
