Ted Williams heading to rehab


Ted Williams, the formerly homeless man with the golden voice, is reportedly heading to rehab after the above confrontation on “Dr. Phil.”

My friend Sharon had this to say after surveying the landscape on Twitter:

Yeah, I know #TedWilliams is a flame-out, but damn, there are a lot of people who are happy that a homeless guy is down on his luck again.

It’s different, but Dr. Phil’s confrontation reminds me of Oprah taking on James Frey. I only hope the outcome here is better.

Williams’ story, for one, is not fiction. It’s also a lot more redeeming than Frey’s. And in his story God was focal both for Williams and the videographer who shared Williams’ voice with the world. There is also something a lot more biblical about caring for and about the homeless.
