Like most Americans, I am completely in favor of giving someone a second chance, including people who do things as utterly despicable as Michael Vick.

But it’s important to note that I am in even greater favor of people who do not screw up  in the first place.

Redemption stories are great, but I sometimes worry that we fail to recognize the less newsworthy but decidedly more honorable people who just do the right thing all the time.
