Michael Vick

I've been pretty conflicted about the whole Michael Vick saga that has enfolded these last few weeks.

Two articles by journalists I respect a whole lot, one black (Jason Whitlock) and one white (Gregg Easterbrook), lend some much needed balance to the discussion. I mention their race because anyone who thinks race and culture is not central to this whole issue, is, in my opinion, simply deluding themselves.

Please read them if you get the chance.

Apart from Michael Vick, I recommend the writings of Messrs. Whitlock & Easterbrook very highly. Jason is a sports journalist. Mr. Easterbrook is the Tuesday Morning Quarterback on ESPN, but ranges farther afield. He is in fact, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institute.
