Story pick: The fighting lady

I know, I know. Boxing. Again. So now you see I'm in that particular writing hell where I feel stuck, and so I keep looking for inspiration. So - this week's third and final boxing pick of the week: David...

Story pick: Demon sheep and floating heads

I was fully prepared to write off the story in Wednesday's Style section about Fred Davis as yet another bloviating, inside-baseball piece about preening and boring political campaign consultants. But very quickly, Philip Rucker, who spent three days with Davis...
