"RIP Cory.  Until we treat alcoholism and other mental health problems as compassionately as we treat cancer, there will be other Corys."

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday.“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. He was 31 years old.

Charles Shaughnessy's thoughts on the trial of George Zimmerman

Charles Shaughnessy @C_Shaughnessy on Twitter

What do you think about the verdict of Not Guilty for George Zimmerman?
