The Drew Brees affair, North Korea, Russia, Congress, John Greenleaf Whittier, and more

NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE I n a column last week, I commented on Drew Brees, the NFL quarterback who got into serious hot water for a statement he made about the American flag and the national anthem. At the same time, I praised Tony Dungy for being so reasonable about the whole affair. He was reasonable almost to the point of being un-American, in this day and age.

Dungy, as you recall, is the retired NFL coach who was the first black head coach to win the Super Bowl. (More important, he’s a prince of a human being.)

What did Brees say? In an interview with Yahoo!
