While perusing through the web, I noticed ESPN wrote a feature article on the Braylon Edwards donation to education news I blogged about a few days back. The article is a good piece of reporting with some extra information on Braylon and his foundation.
On the other end of the spectrum, this column on page D1 of the WSJ a day ago is great at illustrating another issue - having too many opportunities.
