America is doomed.
That's the obvious conclusion now that Mark & Bopper have been eliminated from "The Amazing Race."
Two salt-of-the-earth guys, united in friendship with no regard to the artificial barriers of race, they happily and graciously experienced the world without a note of arrogance.
They were the best of what we can be, what we strive to be.
The Race should have done anything it could to ensure their victory. Bunch up the teams at the airport. Make the next few detour tasks specific to Clay County, Kentucky. Knee cap that whiny girl from Big Brother.
