In her column on Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was suspended two games by the NFL after his arrest for domestic violence, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins criticized the light response to Rice's actions, asking how the league could justify "a two-game penalty for a running back going all Flintstone on his wife."
On Thursday, Jenkins's column provoked an impassioned response from one Post reader, who sent a letter to the editor defending Fred Flintstone against implicit charges of spousal abuse.
As Martin Kramer of Takoma Park, Maryland, wrote, "Fred Flintstone had his faults, but he loved and respected his wife Wilma, often referring to her as his queen."

Michael Sam, a star defensive player for the University of Missouri who may soon play in the NFL, said Sunday: "I am an openly, proud gay man."
The All-American lineman, who spoke to ESPN and the New York Times, is eligible for the NFL draft in May and, assuming he is selected, would become the first openly gay player in the league's history.
"I understand how big this is," he tells ESPN. "It's a big deal. No one has done this before. And it's kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be. ... I want to be a football player in the NFL."

Professional football is a game of rigorously sorted body types. Wide receivers are tall and skinny, offensive linemen are tall and fat, and running backs are short and squat.
Tony Picard, of the Yakama Indian Nation in Washington State, is out to change that last one.
The 6' 4" (and by some accounts 6' 5"), 400 lb. high-school football player started his career at Washington State's White Swan High School anchoring the defensive line. In an unconventional move straight out of Friday Night Lights, however, his coach moved Picard to running back, and a viral sensation was born.
