By rights, this violates the no politics rule. Steve Moore, a regular Journal columnist does a column praising Jalen Rose's Detroit charter academy. It is mostly about school choice, but there's a full rundown on the highlights of Jalen's public life. I can think of few athletes anywhere who do a better job of owning up to their mistakes than Jalen.
One really weird thing is that Jalen insists that Chris Webber didn't get any booster money. I had thought that Jalen had already admitted to taking money, albeit inconsequential amounts. And the notion that Webber never got anything might be news to the Ed Martin estate and the US Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan.
Anyway, here's the link; you should not need a Journal subscription:
It can't be just me who is thinking that Jalen is starting to sound like a future mayor of the City of Detroit.
