Top story: week of August 10-16th 2009

Michael Vick signs with the Philadelphia Eagles.

While I wish our society ultimately changes, as it stands now Vick deserves a chance and I'm glad the Eagles did what was right for their team. Donovan McNabb played an important role in this signing. This shows true character on his part, as this episode could jeopardize his standing in a football sense. On a larger note, we should begin to stand firm against offering extra chances for certain offenses whether criminal or otherwise. However, we should start with sympathetic offenders who are personally popular, not by piling on.
