Nothing any of us can say or write can bring back Robert Ethan Saylor, ease the pain of his family or diminish the loss his friends are feeling. So many lessons can be learned from James Mulvaney’s March 10 Local Opinions commentary, “Why did Robert Saylor die?” One hopes, in particular, that Mr. Mulvaney’s point that “a disability is not a crime” will come across loud and clear in Frederick, Washington and beyond.
