IN CASE YOU HADN'T ALREADY NOTICED, Ron Artest has neither class nor integrity. In fact, he admitted earlier this week that he doesn't even known the meaning of the word "integrity."

Fights at basketball games. Fights at hip hop award shows. Hm. What's the common denominator here?

UPDATE: Pistons claim they will have "Playoff Level" security starting with Sunday's game. Now here's a wonderful example of being fooled into thinking armed police produce order. In truth, even if you had twice the number of security guards, hundreds of fans would easily have their way with a team. Order is produced through voluntary cooperation -- fans voluntarily remaining in their seats, refusing to act like barbarians and players with enough class to refrain from fighting with guys like Ben Wallace or the jerk fan in the third row.
