When told that Jim Ryun’s fanboys have established a Second Life outpost for the former track star and ex-Congressman:
Ryun?s campaign spokeswoman was downright wary. ?We don?t condone or support it. I don?t think we?re going to look at it anytime soon,? said Jackie Harrison. ?It?s intense. You have to download something.?
Once upon a time, Jim Ryun was the fastest man on the planet. In 1967, he ran 1500 meters in 3:33.1, a record which stood for 7 years. He worked hard to get the level of talent and skill that took, and went to three Olympic games along the way. I imagine that was pretty intense.
Now, downloading software is too much trouble for him. Luckily, the second district of Kansas has a representative willing to put in a hard day’s work on behalf of her constituents.
