Hmmm, why is this reported this way you think? From a person (myself) who is not a fan of the current administration's policies or philosophy, I find this AMAZING as to relevance or news worthiness. Case in point, most of my high school classmates and many friends and neighbors from my high school days are in much worse shape than this guy. It has NO absolutely NO reflection on me. This is where and how I disconnect with the FAR right and find their cause untenable and unethical.
There are far too many issues that can be rightfully associated with the current administration as to cause question of judgment/ability... Things like you posted are not in that category. IMHO!!!!
Too many news waana-be news makers dilute the real problems with stuff like this..... Let's stick with the cause and the cause should be to make the administration do its job vice make them look bad........again, IMHO
