Outstanding column on Duke lacrosse

A team of their own

A couple of items he mentions add credibility to the idea that Duke needs to address the Gang of 88's excesses because they were "university-sanctioned" actions:

There were professors who organized huge protests. There was one who made it part of class time to have students attend an anti-lacrosse rally. Another made a now discredited Rolling Stone story on the case required reading.

One-sided accounts of the case made their way onto class syllabi
