Good & Bad

There really are good people and there really are bad people.  And sometimes you find the former and the latter, each, in the very places you wouldn't expect.  Case in point:

An impeccably moral and devout young man named Patrick-Jim Harris was detained, questioned and expelled from Mexico over the weekend. His nickname is “Saint.” He is from Texas. They put him on a plane to Seattle. He is a graduate student at Saint Edwards University in Austin.

He was in Mexico with a self-described physician, comedian, social activist, clown, and author named Hunter Doherty “Patch” Adams who was the subject of a 1998, PG-13 rated movie starring Robin Williams. The sentimental film would have been rated as appropriate for little children except that it is set in a hospital and many of the characters die. In real life, the 71-year-old Adams is the founder of the Gesundheit! Institute which espouses non-traditional medical treatment including the idea that laughter can help people heal.
