I do not personally know the folks involved. This was forwarded to me, and after spending some time on the website and reading up on the case, I felt compelled to share. I had heard about the story before, but did not know that the man involved was an actor until today.
My intention here is to give a fellow performer a helping hand if I can. I think he did the right thing, absolutely. But if your mileage varies on that front, please just ignore. I'm not looking to spawn a big ethical debate, or a political one for that matter -- just trying to pass along the information.
And of course, if you are so inclined, please forward this yourself. I'm sure it would be appreciated.
