3. I've heard about his Dad - and we know that alcoholism has a genetic component

So many people at AA meetings start their qualification with "I come from an alcoholic family." There's also a program for that ACOA, Adult Children of Alcoholics.

And I happened to meet David Cassidy once. It was back in the '80s when I was at Saratoga Race Track with my parents. My Dad was friends with the mayor and he sometimes borrowed his "box," the most exclusive place to sit at the track, you can't buy them, people inherit them. My mother seemed to run into the celebrities and she recognized David Cassidy, started a conversation and made a point of introducing me, LOL.

He was extremely nice, I think he was at a low point in his career, between the TV show and his stage appearances, and was pleased to be recognized. But I did get impression even back then that he was drinking. And more recently, he had a DWI in Saratoga County, I read that he was doing community service and had gone above and beyond what had been asked of him.

It's a very sad story, he was talented and should have had a wonderful life.
