“I commit”: the administrative intransitive

The Jerry Sandusky football sex scandal at Penn State reverberated in the school’s policy chambers, where the Board of Trustees belatedly learned that it had been kept in the dark by the school’s then president. Reacting, the school’s new president made a pledge to the board about future communications.

“I commit,” he said, “to loop you in.”


And that’s how we learned about Penn State’s new varsity sport.
