Two news stories thriving online have to do with politicians in disgrace. Certainly nothing new about that. Both have to do with mayors, one in Toronto, one local, in Marcus Hook.
Both involving booze and sexually inappropriate behavior.
Stories like this are as old as time and always appeal to that side of us that loves to see a spectacular wreck.
Think about this, though.
What's it like to be the father or the daughter or te spouse of one of these guys. What's it like to live with this kind of crazy, self-destructive behavior day after day.
Because many of us do. The families of addicts and alcoholics learn to live with a lot.
And have the scars to show for it.
