For John, BLUF: This is becoming a little like the Salam Witch Hunts. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Boston Globe, by WGBH Co-Hoast Ms Margery Eagan, 23 April 2018.
This is the #MeToo issue and the current moral panic over sexual harassment. In this case it is about US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who was accused of sexual harassment by Ms Anita Hill. The Accusations didn't prevent Justice Thomas' confirmation back in 1991.
The OpEd is just throwing stuff at the wall. There is no suggestion that US Rep Seth Mouton introduce articles of Impeachment and that Senator E Warren lead the prosecution in the Senate. Should we have demonstrations on Boston Common until Justice Thomas sets down?
If sexual harassment is as pervasive as is being suggested we need to find a path to rehabilitation and reconciliation, lest we find ourselves with millions of otherwise qualified men out of work and living on the dole, pariahs in our society, perhaps moving toward being derelicts.
I expect better of Ms Egan. What is the path forward? Remember, this isn't just about a couple of hundred Hollywood big wigs, plus Woody Allen. We are talking about millions of unregenerated men across the fruited plain.
If you have any suggests for helping us avert a major economic and moral disaster, send them to Ms Egan, at WGBH.
