|Tom Gray was a recovered
alcoholic. Following a vision of hell during a drunken stupor,
he quit cold turkey. Retta Brown, the
town poet, wrote a poem about the occasion, called "Tom Gray's Dream,"
which Alcoholics Anonymous in Peoria was permitted to use. Others
are now using it without permission or attribution to her. I do not
object to their using it if it is textually correct, correctly attributed,
and no money is charged for it.
