AT DUKE: Oh, the piety of Duke University President Richard Brodhead, announcing that his school's lacrosse team will play again next season:
"I am, I know, taking a risk in reinstating men's lacrosse," Brodhead said in a statement. "The reinstatement is inevitably probationary."
Now what exactly are the risks?
A university investigation ... found a history of disciplinary problems involving team members, including underage drinking and public urination.
What crap. Brodhead's concern isn't underage boozing or outdoor peeing. His aim is to gain moral authority in the eyes of the feminist lynch mentality that is bent on exploiting the highly publicized (and increasingly dubious) rape allegations to jumpstart their stalled gender wars. Prove me wrong, Mr. Brodhead. If justice is your true concern, why not reinstate the three lacrosse players, against whom the case appears weak at best. Do it on a "probationary" basis, Mr. President. Throw them off the team again if the charges are later proved in a court of law.
