I am bothered by the pressured resignation of Gordon Gee, the President of Ohio State University over remarks he made in the context of college football. Unlike so many dreadfully dull university types, Gee could easily do stand-up comedy. The mocking of Notre Dame (and “those damn Catholics”), Louisville, and, most particularly, the SEC ought to have been received for what it was–funny. Instead, we are treated to the oily and faux outrage that is characteristic of the modern age. Where is Mark Twain when we need him?
