Kay replaces Geoghegan, who hits rehab

Dr. Kay is stepping in as Landis' business manager- mail sent this morning.

Will is off to rehab, which the assembled press thinks completes the celebrity trial scenario.

[ Kay tells me this was intended to be confidential. I'm sorry it didn't say so when sent; I'll take it down, but note that it is now out in the wild, and the facts are known, so there's no point changing the headline. ]

Sounds like it was more than one or two beers.

I'm afraid this may come out wrong, but that letter from Dr Kay made me feel a lot better about the Lemond/Geoghegan situation. The fact that Mr Geoghegan may have a genuine problem, whilst not excusing his actions, does go some way to explaining them.

There was clearly more at work here than just the actions of a vindictive person.

I'm with Ali on this, too. It sounds like Will is getting some much-needed help, and hopefully he will be the better for going through rehab.

I'm puzzled about Dr. Kay's comments regarding closing arguments. I've been under the impression that Patrice Brunet announced on Friday that closing arguments would be held some time in the future, as they're expecting that testimony from the witnesses will go through Wednesday.

My prayers and the prayers of my family are with Will in this matter. Nonetheless, the fact that he "lost it", while Floyd maintains his ever-determined outlook is a testament to Floyd's character and strength during this uphill battle [Floyd has always been a good climber, though].

Will may have lost sight of the objective, but I hope the hearings continues in the direction of Truth, and I hope Will [as well as Mr. Lemond, for that matter] find a way to come to terms with their recent words and actions.

Rehab for Will; what a joke.

I love it; it is the Washington DC defense - "Hey don't blame me, I'm off to rehab". BWAHAHAHA

Have to join the cynics here. This is the Hollywood defense, gets the miscreant out of the public eye, makes him unavailable, gives time to assess what to do, and to a limited extent gets some sympathy while blaming the stupid act on a "problem". Don't know that there is any effective rehab for poor judgment and stupidity.

May be beneficial to Landis to have Will out of the reach of the press from the public p.r. point of view, but the damage was done in the hearing room.

While there is certainly a point to rolling the eyes at the cliche of entering rehab, there is a point to be made on the other side. Rehab often comes when one hits rock bottom. Whether he was drunk or not, that call and its consequences has to qualify as rock bottom for Will as a human being (we hope!). So while it is a PR trick, it can at the same time be the truly best next step for someone who has hit rock bottom.
