"Can This Kid Be Saved?"

From Rick Telander in the Sun-Times:

"The Thresholds Therapeutic School at 4219 N. Lincoln Ave., which Miller attends and which is part of a state- and charity-funded enterprise to help mentally ill young adults, was supposed to have a boys basketball game against another school at an armory in Rogers Park on this evening. The game isn't happening. Somebody forgot or screwed up or whatever-ed at the other end, and Bob Baldwin, Thresholds' hardworking and concerned Young Adult Program principal, has just gotten the phone call. He shrugs and shakes his head. Nothing new about the mess-up."

Sad and frustrating story.
