Here are two stories — one somber and one quite lighthearted — for this Saturday.
The first comes from the New York times on the scene in the trauma center after last week\’s shooting. The piece features wonderful detail and is a very good narrative of what things were really like there.
I liked it in part because of my new job in health care and I do some work with our Level I trauma center, but I think is an interesting read.
Second is a goofy story from Yahoo’s college hoops blog, The Dagger. It is a story of how a North Carolina fan buys a ticket from a scalper for a game at Virginia and gets booted from the seat because he’s wearing a Tar Heels sweatshirt. The whole idea is pretty ridiculous, in my opinion. The idea of how much many schools want to control everything — often to avoid upsetting a coach that has much power — is crazy to me.
Anyway, a couple of good reads.
