    I’ve come to praise Mitch, not to bury him. KSR readers, I have not lost my mind…nor my compass. I’m still the tree-hugging, LGBT-embracing, immigrant-welcoming, campaign finance-reforming, pro-choice feminist that you are used to. I still strongly disagree with the Senate Majority Leader on any number of critical policy issues, from Kavanaugh to climate change,…

        Last October, when the NCAA announced that the University of North Carolina would receive no penalties for an academic scandal that modeled the most morally offensive institutional misconduct in the history of college sports, I penned a tongue-in-cheek obituary for the idea of the “student-athlete.”  I simply couldn’t imagine that the college athletics could sink any lower when…

          There was no joy in Vegas this week…nor in the Bada Bing back rooms of the American underworld.  An unholy monopoly shared by Nevada and organized crime was blown to smithereens Monday, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that all states could now legalize and regulate sports gambling. The ruling also provides an unprecedented — and extremely timely — opportunity…

            As #MeToo takes on the “religious right” in Frankfort, the smart money is on two dynamic women: GOP state Senator Julie Raque Adams and Donna Pollard, a child marriage survivor who won’t take “no” for an answer. During a week when the world lost Billy Graham, the modern era’s most powerful evangelical voice, the religious/political right continues to struggle through an…

              As the Winter Olympics soar to their conclusion, it’s clear that the Russian doping scandal did little to diminish the majesty of the spectacle. But the controversy did highlight the critical work of an organization whose mission is to best ensure that athletes are playing clean of performance-enhancing drugs: the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).  While WADA’s…

                While it’s impossible to quantify what qualifies as real leadership, Christopher Hitchens came damn near close when he highlighted two preeminent virtues: intellectual honesty and moral courage. Today it seems laughable to expect our leaders to meet these ideals. Moral courage appears limited to those who won’t again stand for reelection (Hello, Senators Corker and Flake!) True intellectual honesty…

                  INDIANAPOLIS — The “Student/Athlete” died on Friday, October 13, 2017, after decades on life support, at the age of 53.  The cause of death was asphyxiation, brutally smothered by one of its parents, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”). An autopsy revealed the murder weapon: an NCAA press release announcing that the University of North Carolina athletic program…

                    In this polarized and paralyzed body politic, it’s all too rare to witness opposite tribes finding common cause in controversial policy battles.  But when Kentucky GOP standard bearer Governor Matt Bevin called earlier this week for the compensation of college athletes, your favorite liberal recovering politician stood up to cheer. In case you missed it,…

                      “I’m a First Amendment absolutist. I believe in only two things completely. The First Amendment, and boobs.” It was an iconic, Churchillian moment, an epigram of soaring rhetoric, the kind that lifts nations and propels societies forward.  It was reminiscent of former DC Mayor Marion Barry’s epic “B**** set me up.” Or, natch, Donald Trump’s…
