Washington Post sports columnist Sally Jenkins’ commentary on the U.S. Olympic Committee in Tuesday’s Press Herald (“Time has come to knock down USOC,” Page D4) was a gold medal performance. You can see it on the Press Herald’s website if you missed it.

She shows, again, that when an institution and its well-paid toadies – 129 USOC staffers earn over six figures – become more important than the people they serve, then, as she said, “Knock. It. Down.”

Well done, Sally. I wish we could put you on the podium for proper credit.
