UNHAPPY FATHER'S DAY. There is something so raw and ragged in Jimmy Breslin's column about his daughter's death that reading it is nearly unbearable. His attempts to put some distance between himself and the tragedy he describes - "the daughter," "the mother" - only underscore what a terrible moment he is describing. I'm not going to quote one more word from it. Just read it. Read the whole thing. It will break your heart.
