On Duke

You know, I don’t know whether those lacrosse players raped the stripper they had hired or not. A group of college athletes with alcohol and strippers makes much possible.

But, as time goes on, it seems more and more that the case is falling apart and the media is now no where to be seen. They ran in, gave us all the sensational headlines possible, showed the pictures of the accused players, destroyed the team, then disappeared when it started to look like the sensationalism might not be there.

Again, I don’t know what happened. But if nothing happened, where will these young men go to get their reputations back?

  • The young men involved seemed to be forthright in their denunciation of the alleged incident. Being clean cut and forthright, however, is no proof that they did not do the deed or at least participate in something that was not anything of which they could tell without a worry. Only time will clean them up, probably, but if they are as good as those who know them have declared, their reputations are not that tarnished. If nothing else comes of this that is good, perhaps it will make young people think a long time before they hire such people as these women/”exotic” dancers to provide them entertainment. At least a criminal background check should be made on such entertainers/performers before they’re hired. It would be better if such people were never hired.
