    Larry Nassar
    Yes, Larry is long of tooth. But we put up with a lot worse. Like cricket concerts and no-shows.

    NY Times Headline: Senators Will Push for Increased Oversight of Olympic Sports

    Lede +:

    >>An 18-month Senate investigation has found that the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee and U.S.A. Gymnastics “knowingly concealed” the sexual abuse of gymnasts by a team doctor, and two leading senators have proposed greater congressional oversight of Olympic-related sports. . . .

    As a result of the investigation, Senators Jerry Moran, Republican of Kansas, and Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, will introduce a bipartisan bill on Tuesday that would hold the Olympic committee and national sports governing bodies to more stringent legal accountability . . . <<

    not that "increased oversight" might not be welcome, but reading between the lines, this is no-nothing pols worried about our "amateur athletes" while ignoring all the problems that afflict the pro ball sports.
