A promising young man from Bristol dies in Baltimore
More than a decade ago, I got to know Desi Deschaine, 29, as a high school kid who had humor and talent. I knew he was going places.
And he did.
Keeing up with him on Facebook, I saw how he became part of the political elite in Washington, D.C. and I felt proud of his success.
So it makes me awfully sad to read this story today that Desi's body turned up in Baltimore Harbor yesterday after some sort of boating accident, or whatever.
