I’ve interviewed the author of this post and Emma Sulkowicz for Gawker. I consider myself to have a reasonable bullshit detector, and a strong grasp of the issues involved at Columbia. I found the author and Emma surprisingly forthright, wholly credible, and supremely conscientious at all points in our interviews. I… Read more
I will say what I said in every case that's come up so far at my alma mater in recent years: Just look at the kids' testimony themselves, take it at face value for a minute, and ask yourself whether—even if everything Jansen's clients say is true—we're producing student athletes of character at the Florida State… Read more
Yep, had a similar experience on an east-to-west approach to Fort Lauderdale. Just over U.S. 1 ahead of the airport fence, maybe 40-50 feet up, sudden power up and quick climb.

Kindly direct me to the vitriol. It's not as if I said something like, you know, "Ronald Darby is dumb as a fucking rock."
This is true. But it raises interesting questions about whether Tim Jansen, the Winston attorney who so quickly produced supporting affidavits from Casher and Darby, advised them on the possible university-level ramifications of their testimony, while his main client was advised not to talk, and thus not to expose… Read more
Good read. I can venture no judgments about the propriety of FSU's Title IX efforts. All I do know is that the school's main coordinator left in February, as reported above, and her role is currently being split between the VP of human resources and the assistant dean who we understand was present at Jameis' January… Read more
