Is fighting making Drew a stronger person... or not so much?

Drew has always been a star athlete, but his new method of training isn't exactly principal-approved. Watching those guys beat each other up made me cringe. I know mixed martial arts is a real thing, but I don't get it. Even on my most stressed-out days, I don't think I've ever been in the mood to just fight someone.

I guess I'm with Adam when he says "I like my violence virtual." (Though sometimes, even violent video games are too stressful for me to handle. I prefer the kind with rainbows and unicorns.)

This is probably a dorky thing to say, but I kind of wish I could read the article Katie wrote for the paper about violence in youth culture, just so I could hear her perspective on the whole thing. Though... I was a little worried about her at the end of the episode, when Drew came in to confront her -- he seemed like he was *this* close to losing control. Drew seems to view the no-holds-barred fights as a way to let off some steam, but lately, he seems even more on edge. I wish he could just sign up for yoga or something!

What do you think Drew is getting out of this?

Do you think Katie (or anyone else in Drew's life) is in danger?

p.s. One non-Drew question: Anybody out there have a kidney for Holly J?
