    Suicide was the topic at the table during a weekend program on health care evaluation, many years ago. One of those present was a child psychiatrist. Mischievously, I asked which medical specialty had the highest rate of suicide. "Psychiatry," she replied without hesitation, "but surgeons have one-car fatal crashes." Her answer illustrates the fact that in helping people who have severe problems the helper may also be affected.

He wants no part of "hug a thug" programs, and while he has had his football team he has opposed City Council giving financial support to other youth programs that might have a role to play in prevention.
