English Proffie Gig Open in Pennsylvania.

The Flava.

One day after his arrest on federal child pornography charges, an award-winning English professor at Allegheny College has resigned his position at the college.

Kirk Nesset, 57, of Meadville, formally resigned from the college Thursday at 9 a.m., Kathy Roos, Allegheny spokeswoman, confirmed Thursday afternoon.

“Kirk Nesset resigned without a settlement and is no longer affiliated with Allegheny College,” Roos said. A meeting for members of the college community to discuss the incident and their feelings about it is today.

At least the quick, no-arguments resignation seems like the decent thing to do, if there is a decent thing to do under the circumstances (it might also be a measure of the strength of the evidence against him, but people have been known to make self-serving arguments even in such cases). Given his age (which isn't all that much greater than mine, so I'm in no position to throw stones here), I wonder whether there might be at least a partial medical explanation, though.
