Ryan no different from other addicts

GERRY Ryan’s death, as difficult as it may be for his family to accept, just like Katy French's, was self-inflicted and they were both grown adults who knew exactly what they were doing.

But because they were ‘in the media', us mere mortals are not supposed to ignore the hard reality of where cocaine comes from.
