An Oregon Student Responds To Phil Knight

There's an interesting editorial up on the NY Times this morning
about Phil Knight's reaction
when his alma mater, Oregon, joined the Workers
Rights Consortium rather than the Fair Labor Organization. The editorial
is by an Oregon student who takes issue with Mr. Knight's positions. It's
interesting that an emerging issue, globalization, which really amounts to a
struggle over who should have power, where and how much, has managed to insert
itself into the basketball world.
