In today's edition of the good stuff, the story of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford–which isn’t good because we seem to be watching an addict implode, takes a good turn for some of those watching.
Behind all the punch lines about Ford, behind the seemingly-goofy overweight man and his antics, is a person with a problem. The concern is that mocking the problem might make people not seek treatment who need it.
Chris Cuomo discussed addiction with William Moyers of the Hazelden Clinic on "New Day." He addressed his own addictions some twenty years ago. And Moyers reports that, since his appearance on the show, a dozen people or their families reached out for help. And so far, three are already in treatment.
