Penn State

Thoughts about the Penn State situation specifically, and college sports in general:

The redeeming feature of sports in the US is that, while business and tech journalism are uniformly superficial, sports reporters sometimes dig and sometimes report what’s really happening. The underlying dilemma here – a trusted subordinate is seen to be doing something wrong – could happen to any senior manager. Because this happened to the management of a sports team, we actually hear about it.
