THE BILL COSBY saga had a built-in local angle. While Cos no longer lives here, he hung out at Temple and the Penn Relays so often it was like he never left. In the court of public opinion, the death of Michael Brown is the flip side of the Cosby story - Cosby is crucified while Brown is canonized - but the Brown story lacked a Philly local angle until Charles Barkley jumped in with his size-16 feet. Although Cosby hasn't been charged with anything, let alone convicted, it's hard to believe he's a lamb.

It's hard to reconcile the accumulated accusations of sexual assault facing Bill Cosby with the charismatic comedian and pudding purveyor of yore. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try. The collective will to ignore these incongruous incarnations only enabled the Philadelphia native to go on about the latter chapters of his charmed career - and allowed much of the public to be blithely entertained by it - without facing the accusations. Having embarrassingly persisted in this pretense even after the rest of the country abandoned it, Temple University became one of the last major institutions to distance itself from Cosby, who resigned from its board of trustees this week.

Jill Scott stands by Cosby Philly-born singing star Jill Scott stands by her friend Bill Cosby on Twitter - and some of her followers don't like it. As Layla A. Jones of Philly.com reports, Scott got a request on Nov. 24 to sign a petition asking Temple University to sever ties with the beleaguered comic. (On Monday, Cosby did in fact step down from Temple's board of trustees.) At the time, Scott tweeted: "oh ok. So they've proven the alleged allegations? I didn't know.

I REALLY HAD NO intention of writing about this ever again. I'd said most of what I needed to say in print, on Facebook, on the radio and on television, and was getting tired of going around in circles about the phrase "statute of limitations. " There were other things to think about during my birthday week, like how many Starbucks gift cards I was likely to get and whether actually asking for a bottle of Sambuca with a bow on it was declasse. But then, someone said something that, like a red flag in the face of a bespectacled 5-foot-1-inch bull, made the steam flow.

T EMPLE University's most recognizable face, Bill Cosby, resigned from the Board of Trustees yesterday after 32 years, amid swirling controversy over sexual-assault allegations from 20 women. Cosby, 77, had been on the board at his beloved alma mater since 1982, and was a regular attendee at university events and a speaker at class commencements. Other schools associated with the television icon, including the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Boston's Berklee College of Music, also cut ties with Cosby recently as the assault allegations resurfaced in October and went viral.

FINALLY, it was Bill Cosby who put Temple University out of its misery. More than a month after a comedian's comments on Cosby allegedly being a rapist went viral and long after others distanced themselves from the comedian amid increasing allegations of rape, Temple continued to stand by their Pudding Pop man. And then yesterday, Cosby did the necessary deed himself and resigned from Temple's Board of Trustees, a seat he held for 32 years....

  EVERY DAY, it seems, there is a new sexual-assault allegation against Bill Cosby. Women who first accused him years ago, and whose stories are getting a new hearing, are being joined by others only now coming forward. While the famous 77-year-old actor and comedian remains silent and his career totters on the brink of collapse, the scandal raises many uncomfortable questions about justice and the court of public opinion - questions made even more difficult by the dynamics of race, gender and politics.
