There are nearly a half-dozen stories coming to focus over this past week that could be the subject of this week's commentary. Then Sunday morning came the news that Howard Cosell had died in New York during the night at age 77. He had been fighting a number of ailments over the past few years as he had faded from public view. The last significant public attention came a few months ago when he was given a richly deserved tribute at the ESPY awards.
