This ESPN.com job got killed at the last minute and replaced with photos, but I still had fun with this great story. It was about the unwritten rules of baseball. This whole set of esoteric never-dos that have been passed down by word of mouth from veterans to rookies, from generation to generation, for 100 years. Here are the spots – NEVER bunt to end a no-hitter, when a pitcher should drill a batter, NEVER swing at a 3-0 pitch when you’re winning by 8 or more runs, NEVER walk across the mound unless you’re the pitcher, and NEVER EVER cadillac around the bases after hitting a home run. Thanks to Heather, Neil and Chin for a great assignment.
Here are two pieces I did for the NYTimes this past week. First, for the OpEd page, about the shooting in Santa Barbara and how it’s almost impossible for mental health professionals to know who will turn violent:
We both agreed the best solution was to not use a gun in the image, that it was more about which of these people is not like the others. You can see some of the rejects below. Challenging assignment and always great to work with AD Matt Dorfman.
And a last minute quick one for Science Times about a contest to build a computer that can defend itself from hackers:
Thanks to AD Peter Morance.
