Feel good story

For a feel good story, far from the daily dose of war and mayhem, you can't top Joe Warmington's column Tuesday in the Toronto Sun.

It is all about a town celeb called Christopher Todd Wilkinson in South Fredericksburg, Ontario, born with Down syndrome and who will mark his 40th birthday next April 1.

"Life for Todd is a joy," writes Joe. "It's plain, it's simple and it's pleasurable."

The Scrawler's column was a joy to read, as are many of his columns throughout the year.

Be sure to circle next April 1 for a 40th birthday tip of the hat to Todd and his devoted parents.

And how about a feel good TV movie about Todd?
