As much as I would like to take umbrage at unflattering remarks about our city and the drug culture surrounding MLB pitching prospect Jeff Allison in your story Pride of Peabody (Dec. 20), the real tragedy is not that we let one athlete slip through the cracks but that we have let it happen to many young people. My hope is that--in every community--political leaders, educators, businesspeople, parents and students will take the larger lessons from your story and begin a process to rid our communities of the drug problems we all face. I assure you Peabody is working on ours.

Sad. Twenty years old and he's already facing a 3--2 count. If only Ken Caminiti could talk to this guy right now.
