What a crazy news day! Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) just announced that he is checking himself into the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment due to a prescription drug addiction. Kennedy had previously been in drug treatment in his late teens. Personally, I hate it when people demagogue on issues like this so I hope that no one does. Addiction is a serious problem, and a mental health one at that. Hopefully, he can recover quickly and hire a driver so this doesn’t have to happen again.
UPDATE: I’m glad that Sullivan agrees.
