Sunday Roundup

This week was about storms and climate change. First, Missouri football star Michael Sam ignited a storm and changed the climate in the NFL by coming out, making him, when he's drafted, the league's first openly gay player. A blizzard of mostly positive -- and a few regrettably negative -- reactions ensued. Climate change was less constructive in Sochi, where thermometers hit the 50s, giving the place a warmer Wednesday than many host cities of Summer Olympics. Along America's East Coast, however, yet another winter storm descended, which in turn ignited a chilly exchange between New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Roker over school closures. Taking on special interests is one thing, but picking a fight with a beloved weatherman is another. Meanwhile, I was lucky enough to be in balmy San Francisco for the Wisdom 2.0 conference, devoted to spreading mindfulness in a stormy world. Not a moment too soon.
