"I believe anybody who tells you he is unbiased is a liar. Being human gives you bias, and you can't avoid that. The best you can ever hope to be is fair."

Wow, what a week at RJO!  We are in full-swing! Thanks to Eddie for his work at Phoenix this past weekend, and he took tons of photos. I hope you saw them posted yesterday. If you missed them, you can click here and see your favorite drivers and even your non-favorites, too. 

In case you haven't yet noticed the link at the top of the main RJO page, we're doing a podcast now, at least once a week (as a preview to the next race, and that link will usually be updated Friday evenings), but we're hoping to always do at least two. The second one (or first?) will be Sunday evenings after the race, and that's our feature, "How'd He Do That?", which will summarize a few key points that we believe were instrumental to the victory. We considered a more gender-neutral title, or maybe a logo that we could then cross out "He" and make it "She" in case Danica wins. This idea, of course, was followed by laughter. Pretty sure we can ink the logo.  The podcasts are short and won't take a lot of time, just a couple of minutes. Hopefully you'll enjoy them, and keep in mind, we're in the early days of the audio endeavor, so once we get rolling and more comfortable, we'll be including more and more content in that format (but not to replace the written articles!).

So what's new in NASCAR this week?

So this week Erin "Dodge The 50-cent Kiss" Andrews was awarded $55 million in a lawsuit against the parties responsible for the violating video of her posted online. Some have voiced an opinion that this is ridiculous, but more (and here is where I agree) cite the reason it's not too much is because of how the defense attorney posed his questions to her, asking if in fact, this didn't prove to be a lucrative event in her career. No doubt this is the same attorney that would ask a rape victim, "But look, now you have a lovely child, right?" This is not a matter of someone who made a sex video intended to be private, but then it got into the wrong hands and went public. She had every expectation of privacy, and did nothing to bring this on herself. Give her the damn money! And don't stay at Marriott.

A Hendrick plane emergency landing for "smoke in the cabin"... Since everyone is okay, we can give the best comment award to the guy who said, "I just want to know why Tony Stewart wasn't on his OWN plane."
