I found the story about former Rep. Steve Smith, written by Sarah T. Williams, to be one of the most moving and well-written pieces I have ever read on your site — or anywhere else, for that matter.
Williams wrote in a non-judgmental and informative manner about the ravages of addiction while never forgoing respect for the individuals involved.
I have shared the article with numerous friends and, to a person, the reaction has been the same. Williams is to be commended, as is MinnPost for providing the forum for her story. Your commitment to quality journalism is reflected in stories like this one. Thank you to both Sarah Williams and MinnPost.
