Creigh Deeds speaks

Gus and Creigh Deeds

Last November I posted about Creigh Deeds, who represents my part of southwest Virginia in the State Senate, being stabbed multiple times by his mentally-disturbed son Gus, who then shot himself to death after a failure of the mental health system.

Deeds, who bears the physical and emotional scars of that tragic encounter, was featured on Sunday in a moving segment on the CBS News program “60 Minutes.”
