It was refreshing to read Kevin Myers (Comment, December 16) tell it like is regarding the deaths of Gerry Ryan and Katy French.
What made them any different from a junkie dying from an overdose? In my mind, nothing.
They were just the same, but had more money. As Kevin Myers said, they just had a "coke habit", which they could afford and both knew full well what they were doing.
Pity the poor parents who have lost children to addiction, those who have tried to get their children to stop, in some cases to no avail.
