Former Osama bin Laden translator has words for LeBron James
Ottway Ducard stashed this in Culture
In addition to sharing the news of (Majid) Khan's cat, Rahim had another thought to share with his lawyer, who we should note, is from Akron, Ohio.
"Dear Mr. Warner!" he wrote in a separate freshly declassified letter. "Lebron James is very bad man. He should apologize to the city of Cleveland."
Warner says Rahim's sentiment about the NBA star who left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat reflects his client's tribal values, in which loyalty is paramount and "betrayals are not tolerated or forgiven, although an honest apology from an offending peer is valued."
Uh oh. LeBron better apologize!
It's (close) to his hometown too. I remember visiting Cleveland his last year. The man had posters of himself all over the city. It was crazy. I'd never seen anything like it -- the hero worship.
Except in State College, my hometown, for a man named paterno.
You either die a hero...
People have unreasonable expectations. Let's all agree to stop putting our heroes on pedestals.
Well said, sir.
