Today's column

Here's the link to today's column. I've been working on this story, off and on, over three months, watching Howard Fry's progress, or lack of it, in finding a new place to live, learning more about him and his relationship with his mother. It's a complex story, and I arrived, with summer intern Rafi Tamargo, some 18 months after the brutal crime. So it's been a challenge to understand who Howard Fry is now compared to the Howard Fry with hands and legs. Had he not been attacked in so brutal a way, Howard would likely be living on the margins, but independently so.

The bit about crime victim's compensation is a joke -- the state couldn't find a 100 bucks to send this man's way.
