Marion Jones should invite every fan with cable access to be her judge, to decide her legacy. She needs a public trial, or the closest thing to it.
Her lawyers already have released documents, purportedly the evidence against her in a doping case, and pointed out flaw after flaw. The U.S. Anti- Doping Agency, the prosecutors in American doping cases, won’t comment. They’re supposed to keep quiet until a case is resolved, to respect the privacy of athletes.
It’s an admirable policy, and athletes helped shape it. They helped put together USADA, which currently looks like a shadowy bureaucracy and the enemy of athletes everywhere. It’s not, but silence always seems suspicious, and USADA won’t even publicly confirm that it is investigating Jones.
