And in Sports News...

Dustin Johnson suspended from PGA Tour after positive test for cocaine - GOLF.com

This is yet more proof that once addiction grabs a hold of someone, it doesn't let go easily.

Johnson has earned $4.2M on Tour this year alone and has the potential to be a tremendous player. He's engaged to a woman most men would consider a smokeshow (Paulina Gretzky). And yet he's risked everything in order to feed his addiction.

It's sad, and only goes to show that it doesn't matter who you are; once drugs get a hold of you, they will bring you to your knees.

He says he is going to get help...I truly hope he does.

Addiction doesn't care who it grabs or how many people get hurt.

Sad.
