In The News
At least those that run Ohio State University are transparent. With the suspension, instead of, say, firing, of head football coach Urban Meyer, they’ve reinforced what we already know: that a winning football program trumps everything. Meyer produces playoff appearances and national championships and that’s what Ohio State has long demanded out of the men who run their football program.

A lesser coach, one that has not produced conference and national championships would have been fired. Any other employee would have been fired. Meyer should have been fired, too.

Lately in this space we’ve noted some institutions that should just go away, like the Republican Party and the Catholic Church. Let’s add the NCAA to that list. They are utterly incapable of running a major division athletics program that is not a complete and utter cesspool.

Don’t blame them, though. The fault is ours. We like our college sports, so we tolerate this crap and even enable it. When we demand better, we will get better.

Sparrow spends most of the day playing with his loose tooth on today’s edition of The Diary of a Nobody. It’s coming out and being replaced soon enough, but the tooth is tough, still hanging in there when Sparrow called it a day. Also, there is a snitty customer at the retailer.

Len Deighton, one of our planet’s best spy novelists, has The Thought for the Day, a quote about how putting an apple in an orange box doesn’t make it an orange.
