I was a bit surprised that I heard from only one reader so far about Sam Mellingers column on former Mizzou basketball player Michael Dixon. This readers objection:
By Derek Donovan
The Kansas City Star
Gee, I'm so glad Michael Dixon received his second (or third) chance. Nice of the Star to give an accused rapist so much positive publicity.
The column certainly doesnt shy away from the accusation. But some readers would prefer not to read features about people with such notorious pasts. Its a fair point, but I think others would say theyre still interested in his career post-MU.
