"If a person owns an item, the disposition of that item should be the business of that owner only. In short, he can do whatever he wishes with it, including, but not limited to, sell it, give it away, bury it in the back yard, or burn it for warmth. The obvious (read: statist) exception of intellectual property aside, this seems pretty straightforward. Clearly then, something else must cover the case of NCAA athletes." (12/28/10)
