Story pick: The loneliest position

By Christian Davenport

The economy is still in a slump. Unemployment is high and may stay that way for a while. We're worried about our jobs, our futures, whether a company that wants to do more with less might decided we're suddenly expendable. But for those of us who don't have to launch the pigskin through the uprights, things will get better. Life for NFL kickers, it seems, will always be cutthroat, as Michael Leahy explains in this smart, engaging, Michael-Lewis like foray into the world of the "football's loneliest position" in this week's Washington Post Magazine.
