Saltzman Says...Two sides to everything

Bryan Stow may not be back to his old self again, but his family has certainly seen the best of what Giants and Dodgers fans have to offer over these last two months.  Consistent donations have been pouring in from stadiums, restaurants, celebrities, etc...

But now the family is on the attack themselves.  The Stow family has filed a lawsuit against Frank McCourt for cutbacks that "led to perfect conditions for an attack." 

I understand the family's frustration.  Well, I don't.  I might never understand how much pain a family must go through when someone they love is in a medically induced coma.  What they have gone through over the last 7 weeks might be more gut wrenching than anything I have ever experienced in my life. 

I just don't understand what the family hopes to accomplish with this lawsuit.  If they take this to trial and win some money from the McCourts, it will certainly be better spent than how they have wasted money.  Mrs. McCourt allegedly has a house just for her clothes.  However, this trial would certainly be a waste of taxpayer money. 

With all the beautiful gifts this family has received since March 31, 2011 from all walks of life, why not just let that be part of the healing process.  To see so many people come together should help make up for what this family is suing the Dodgers for in the first place.
