I read somewhere that Jim Palmer used to wet his bed.

So after reading the articles linked to, am I to understand that the only evidence to back any of this up is a single comment allegedly made 25 years ago, which Carlton denies having made, basically just referencing some nut job conspiracy theory, to a reporter who himself says Carlton is definitely not racist or anti Semitic?

Its pretty thin.

Guy has been the subject of a number of articles in the LA Times and someone thinks it's unfair that a simple question was asked on this colleting board? Weird response in people getting all defensive for Steve Carlton. Same question is asked about prominent public figures every day in the press.

I have reason to suspect Mario Andretti.
