Three Good Reads

Washington Post staff writer and glutten for punishment Gene Weingarten spends an entire Valentine's day overdosing on fetid right-wing punditry and lives to tell about it. A writer for accompanies new Dodger manager Joe Torre on a trip to China, and finds him cool in any language. Finally, the law professor and prolific journalist Jeffrey Rosen chronicles how the Supreme Court has come to increasingly side with the interests of business. You can review the inaugural Three Good Reads here.

KSU, white supremacist threatens life of student journalist. Power of written word to promote discussion, increase understanding, bring change. See link to video:

Just thought provoking. Kudos to courage.

No wonder Eric Neel is senior writer for Joe Torre portrait reveals professional with such human touch and surprising openness that coaches us all. Good call, John.

Sorry, but I'm not interested in anything produced by Ch. 19, purveyor of lowbrow tabloid titilation trying its best to masquerade as "news." It's all garbage, and it all belongs where we put garbage.

That ESPN piece really is wonderful. Joe Torre is not a subject that I would otherwise care much about, but like all great writing, the writer makes me care with some great storytelling. I'm so glad they've beefed up their narrative storytelling capabilities with some serious writers, in the tradition of their arch-competitor Sports Illustrated. I'll be looking for his byline from now on.
