He doesn't deserve to get off the hook. TW is a disgusting human being.

Yes, he was.

So a sports writer decides to write about his private failings and condemn him. Yet he played his sport by the rules.

The same writer defends a sports figure who systematically cheated and broke the rules. Who also has private and moral failings that are in the public domain.

She has been outed yet again for who she truly serves.

Sally is part of the gang. The article actually provides some comic relief to this, in that if you really wondered how pathetic an apologist could become, well.....this was pretty pathetic.

She is no worse than the gang here. This place is pretty pathetic as well.

But not so pathetic that you have posted, to date, 177 times.

Is that too many or too few? I post when I see something I feel like responding to.

I'd post more but there is a limit to how many torches and pitchfork parties I want to attend.

Well if you didn't attend so many, you'd have more time to post here instead. Priorities, they're a killer.

"Sometimes it is a real compliment to be out there on your own. My dad (longtime Sports Illustrated writer Dan Jenkins) taught me this – you take the prevailing attitude, you turn it upside down and you ask yourself if the opposite point of view is smarter. And, a lot of times it is. This does mean being out there on your own."
- Sally Jenkins
Dad's advice was quite good, it's a shame she didn't follow it when she should have - 10 or 12 years ago.

Here is Sally Jenkins lecturing Barry Bonds.

And then here is Jenkins siding with Roger Clemens.

So let's sum up. Jenkins blasts Tiger Woods and Barry Bonds. But she goes easy on Joe Paterno and Clemens, and she celebrates Armstrong.

Does Jenkins adjust her standards by race? Gotta ask.

Incredible no other words for it! How can she call out Bonds and stick by Lance for what would appear (admittedly not overly familiar with Bond's case) to be exactly the same issue doping/cheating. If she applies the same logic to both cases she has to come up with the same answer. She managed not to. For what reason money? not wanting to admit she's wrong? Is she in love with Lance? I dunno but it stinks to high heaven..
