We Challenge Chuck Norris

By Rick Pearcey

UC Santa Barbara -- Working on The Pearcey Report today, I'm in my brother Terry's office here at UCSB, where he's a computer analyst.

I read him the conclusion of the Norris commentary titled "Bruce Lee vs. Me."

Says Norris, "So, would I have beaten Bruce Lee in a real competition or not? You'll forgive me for answering with another Bruce-ism: 'Showing off is the fool's idea of glory'."

That answer may be just a bit too humble. In any case, Terry suggests a way to settle the question: "Computer simulation."

That seems doable. And imminently watchable. Video, cable, gaming?

I believe the kick is in your corner, Mr. Norris.
