Emerson Writing, Literature and Publishing Associate Professor Jeffrey Seglin was called upon to comment on a tragic event that made news in Columbus, Ohio: a mentally ill 24-year-old man was turned away from a stranger’s home in the middle of the night and subsequently froze to death in a neighbor’s shed.

“It’s easy after the fact to think about what you should have done. I’m not sure that anyone would have expected them to invite the person in without feeling scared.”

Seglin spoke on the January 25 episode of the radio show All Sides With Ann Fisher: “Ordinary Ethics.”

Seglin writes “The Right Thing,” a weekly column on general ethics syndicated by Tribune Media Services. He has also been an ethics fellow at the Poynter Institute and the Center for the Study of Values in Public Life at Harvard.
