Andy & Tammy Reid's Philly Mag Story Now Online in its Entirety


For those of you who don't subscribe to Philadelphia Magazine -- which I'm guessing is every male under 47 reading this site -- the entire interview with Andy and Tammy Reid is now available online.  It's a long interview and pretty much tells the tale of a family and their battle with drug abuse.

One of the things that I found unique to the Reids was that after  an attempt at junior college in California didn't pan out, Garrett helped Andy out with the draft.

Andy: He
came back, and I said, hey, you can work for me, during the draft. He
broke down film and did great — when he was by my side and I could stay
right there, everything was cool. But when the draft was over, he had
to get a real job to earn some money to go back to school at Montgomery
County Community College, and then he came to me and said, “I’ve fallen
off the wagon.”

Feel free to quote an excerpt you found eye opening in the comments section.
