I am 15 years old and I find myself totally enraged by the article "Victory dance" (Aug. 18, Page D-1).
Michael Phelps is a positive role model for kids my age, unlike the drug-addicted and nonrealistic superstars Hollywood is cramming down our throats. Michael sets goals for himself, works hard and earns his way to his goals, and all this article is doing is poking fun at him for celebrating the accomplishment of these goals.
Don't get me wrong. I love a good anthropology fact now and then, but comparing a national hero and many young people's role model to an ape is wrong and could be completely done without!
