    There is a slightly similar story in the news here today. Here in Edmonton in 2000, an elderly gentleman tried to escort an intoxicated bum, who had been sleeping in the entrance of an apartment, outside. The elderly man was beaten to within an inch of his life and has been an invalid ever since. Just recently, his wife was able to raise enough money to get some sort of speech computer that will allow her husband to communicate with her for the first time in 5 years.
