We're usually tracking perps here; but now, for some good news:

R. A. Dickey, the knuckle-baller for the Mets, won the NL's Cy Young Award, which is a big deal, especially considering that in his new memoir, Where Ever I Wind Up, he talks about recovering from CSA -- and how CSA recovery allowed him to embrace his differences and develop his knuckle-ball.

In short: his CSA survivor experience prepared him, however painfully, to become the best pitcher in the National League.

I believe we all have this ability to use our abuse history and survivor/recovery experiences to succeed in our own unique ways, and here is R.A. Dickey proving that.

Congrats to him, and to us all.

But he grew old, this knight so bold / And upon his heart a shadow / Fell as he found / No spot on the ground / That looked like El Dorado.

He's obviously a strong, well-grounded guy... if he can cope with belonging to the Mets! ;^}
