I am as nauseated as the next woman about what I have come to believe about Bill Cosby (Baltimore City Power Rankings, Nov. 4). The key phrase here is "come to believe." Criticizing JHU in a snide, superior tone about their delay in repealing their honorary doctorate to Cosby is a kind of knee-jerk, witch-hunt, court-of-public-opinion position that City Paper might want to avoid if you want to preserve integrity. I get that people are frustrated because a likely monster is escaping criminal justice—but JHU is not wrong to consider a closer examination before acting. Knowing and believing are very important distinctions that are all too often glossed over. This is how you get so many wrongful convictions. Just because there seems to be so much evidence doesn't mean that people like you or me are in a position to know.
