Bizarre standard 091298 - The Augusta Chronicle



Why was the unmarried Marv Albert fired from is job last year? Because, if you recall, the nationally renowned sportscaster engaged in some bizarre sex and then lied about it, muddying the image of his employers and the sports events he covered.

Consider that the very married Bill Clinton has also engaged in some eccentric sex, and with a woman not his wife -- and that it has also been said "the president of the United States is the distillation of the American character and spirit into one man."

Doesn't this raise a scary question? Are we Americans now holding our sportscasters to a higher standard of conduct than our president?
