I agree, I felt sorry for him too. Should we? I guess so, I just felt a little weird about it. The one problem I had with it was that I'd heard that both Resto and Lewis profited (however small) from the documentary. I guess Lewis requested money every time he was asked to speak. That's what I found most distasteful. And of course the "hard core" journalistic attempts at getting Billy Collins Sr. on film. Those things made it kind of sleazy.
