As I noted, I do not begrudge his opinions--nor his negative opinions--but how he delivers them.
It is one thing to disapprove of President Brodhead's leadership, and another to compare it to that of an amoeba and to call him "Mr. Chips."
It is one thing to disagree with the management or direction of Duke football, and another to suggest continously that it abandon the ACC.
It is one thing to be angry that he's been omitted from the "distinguished alumni" list and another to disparage the Duke alum who became a finalist on Survivor--Kelly Bruno, a friend of mine, who has done plenty of good to merit recognition without the scorn of someone out to score a point or two on his blog.
His articulation of his opinions and observations are what made him so darn good for so long. His standards have slipped.
