Memo to Lindsay Davenport...

No, we certainly do not "all" still respect our leaders. (In fact, some Americans who were paying attention never respected them at all.)

First, Davenport--who was on the verge of filing suit against Sony Ericsson Tour CEO Larry Scott--tells the world how much she respects him. And now she assures the world that--oh, yes--all Americans continue to respect their leaders.

I want the old Lindsay Davenport back--the one who spoke out, not the pod person who has replaced her. Though I have rarely seen eye to eye with Davenport on important issues ("rarely" being the key word), I have appreciated her candor and her willingness to stand up for herself and for the women on the tour. Now, more and more, she sounds like she's doing an on-court interview in Stepford.
