Rabbi Dan Ornstein: Searching For Khaled

I was a twenty-one year old junior in college when I met Khaled Nusseibeh.  We were both undergraduates at Columbia University in New York thirty years ago, and my memories of him and our brief friendship are now quite old and likely distorted.

Keith Strudler: NCAA Investigation At Oklahoma State

Sex, drugs, and cheating. Sounds a lot like a Tom Wolfe novel, right? Only this story isn’t fiction. This is a story about Oklahoma State football in the decade staring in the late 1990’s, where the marginal football program evolved into a national power that finished consistently in the nation’s top ten.

Oklahoma State has already done its best to debunk SI’s reporting as myth, which will be about a simple as disproving the moon landing.
