People assume that ethicists are uniquely horrible human beings. But really they are no more flawed than anyone else.

I learned in kindergarten that everyone is unique. I didn't learn about the -ly horrible bit until later on (probably junior high).

She directs the university's Parr Center for Ethics is really what takes the whole thing from sordid to sublime.

This is the NCAA we are talking about. Ethics got nothing to do with it.

Isn't "giving out degrees for fake coursework" exactly what the accreditation process is all about?

Halford was right: cleanse it with salt and fire.

Ours truly is the great age of ethics. Ethics in journalism, ethics in philosophy... there is no frontier our ethicalistic giants aren't pushing forward to the horizons.

Given all this, you'd think we'd have at least had a good football team, but no.

The rest of us are pointing and laughing, but a bunch of legitimate UNC African-American Studies diploma holders should be legitimately pissed off. Grounds for a lawsuit?

I'm somberly reflecting on the future of sport. But, I think the athletes could sue. At least, I know of one who did, successfully.

16. Why would anyone cleanse *Duke* with fire, in this case?

The NCAA I could totally see.

British people don't realize that to hail Duke is to curse UNC.

Apparently the feats were taking them as well, school sounds ludicrous.

"And now it will fall to the NCAA, God help us, to parcel out blame and responsibility and punishment. At this point, of course, the NCAA is little more than a walking conflict of interest, and an absurd one, at that. The NCAA would not exist if players were not paid under the table. The NCAA would not exist if so many of its "member institutions" weren't playing ethical mumblety-peg with their academic integrity to keep the players eligible and the money flowing everywhere except into the pockets of the people doing all the real work. There is absolutely no way this will end well. There is absolutely no way this will not end hilariously, however."
