Ron Richmond’s series on football brain injuries

for the Register Guard. The last came out this morning. The articles combine science and data with stories about the lives and decisions of local players, parents, and coaches. I don’t know Mr. Richmond, but it’s a stunning piece of journalism which I am guessing will win at least a few awards. And maybe even change a few people’s minds. 9/6/2012.
