Apparently addiction has claimed another life of a talented young star.

Cory Monteith, 31, a rising star on  the FOX network series “Glee,” was found dead in a Vancouver, British Columbia hotel room Saturday. (See story.)

The pull of addiction claims so many young, gifted performers. How can our society end this contemporary form of evil?

And, today, close friends of ours had their apartment ransacked while they were attending church.

The investigating officers told our friends: most likely the thieves will sell their belongings quickly and use the money to buy…drugs.
