the most crucial, & most life affirming thing, that could come from this is a detailed explication of what dale tacheny did to cure this man. applying it in other cases would be a tribute to the murdered irene garza, more even than if we dumped fr feit into prison for his remaining eight months [or whatever he has left].
somehow, at least here, a good intellect combined w/stumbling but heartfelt compassion did what hardline imprisonment never does. we, as a culture, misunderstand & malign the lessons of the sixties/seventies/babyboomers/etc ect. we, astonishingly, find their behavior immoral. it was not; instead & in truth, those times & the people who lived w/in them were <i>more</i> moral than what has come after. concerned w/ unbearable horror, then redemption & all but impossible possibility, this dreadful crime & its odd aftermaths are but one proof of the superior quality inherent in that era's decency, taking form, in this case, in the actions of dale tacheny.
