Columnist guilty of promoting himself

I felt a need to respond to the Nick Bowton column of Sept. 11 entitled "Time to Get Out of Here." Nick criticizes IU student Kent Harvey for his behavior with the Bob Knight incident. In particular, he writes "Perhaps (Harvey) doesn't like Coach Bob Knight or IU basketball. Perhaps he thought it would be entertaining to get Knight in trouble. Perhaps he just wanted to be on TV or in the news. Perhaps he should have thought before he acted." \nFunny that Bowton accuses Harvey of creating all this media attention because he "just wanted to be in the news." One might say that Bowton's own piece, in which he overlooks the fact that an incident may actually have occurred between Knight and Harvey, is the columnist's own attempt to have his voice heard.
