-I also wonder if we've grasped how often alcohol abuse opens the door to abusing loved ones. Part of a syndrome...
And folo to previous: I don't consider myself moral referee for @nfl players. But abuse is especially savage crime-
In reply to many: %of @nfl players who abuse may be same as society. But plays team, league, use to conceal are offensive.

The @nflcommish says they're a "microcosm of society." Millionaire athletes playing violent game saturated w/ drugs?
I'm not sure pointing to "partnerships," calls to a hot line, & hiring more consultants looks like taking responsibility.
It's always inspiring when someone robotically says "you know I feel passionately..." as he's glancing down to read his speech.

Just had chilling, vital talk w? @Laurie_Garrett on Ebola. Outbreak so wide, 400,000 people could be felled by end of year.
-Some basics: avoid dependent clauses; & long, titled prefaces to names; & gerunds & ing words. Most of all: be yourself.
Sorry to hear of loss of David Candow. The Host Whisperer taught so much to many of us who didn't know what we had to learn-
Genuinely sad to hear about the death of David Candow who taught and inspired generations of public radio journalists. #rip #nprlife
