Good For Him

Ted Williams, the homeless man who has become a semi-sensation after a reporter recorded him using his 'radio voice', has decided to enter rehab for alcohol and drugs. 

Good for him.

From some of the articles I've read about him and the family he left behind for his life as a drug and alcohol addict, he needs it.  Hopefully he will be able to find ways to deal with both his addiction and his reasons for turning to drugs and alcohol in the first place.

I've seen a lot of people, both in my personal life and in the news, who have gone into treatment after being caught out of bounds while under the influence.  It is exceedingly rare for someone to seek out treatment when things are going as well as they are for Mr. Williams.  Yes, his adult life up this point has been a trainwreck, but if he takes the assistance that is being offered and stays clean, he may be able to make a better life for himself and possibly help others.

Good luck to him.
