Deadspin is reporting that Bill Conlin, one of the most famous sportswriters in the country, has resigned from The Philadelphia Daily News. The report says that the “Philadelphia Inquirer’s top investigative reporter, Nancy Phillips, has written a story containing what we’re told are allegations of child molestation against sportswriter Bill Conlin.” Unbelievable.
Let’s pretend for a second these allegations are true. I have no idea, but let’s pretend for a second.
Does this story run if Jerry Sandusky is never caught? In the world of unintended consequences, Jerry Sandusky ends up saving lots of children from child molesters just like Michael Vick has done more than any person in human history of preventing the abuse of dogs in this country.
