Not just the booze talking

Yesterday, I reported about a 14-year-old New Hampshire girl who nearly died from an alcohol and drug overdose, saved only by hypothermia.

Well, Destiny Foose is recovering nicely in a Boston hospital, and she’s given an interview to New Hampshire’s Union Leader newspaper. She says the right things, and just might be able to turn her life around.

I see a lot of offers for TV appearance in her future, as Oprah, Montel, and the like beat down her door to get her story out. If she’s very lucky, she’ll be able to avoid it and just quietly work on being a normal, healthy kid for a while.

But, sadly, I don’t see that happening.

(Update: Crud, wrong link posted. Link to actual story given. Thanks, Marcus.)
