KHK is R.I.P.!

Well, now we know why last week's protest against the Kids Helping Kids cult was so uneventful.

It's because we had gotten the place shut down, and we just didn't know it yet!

I've waited almost a year to be able to say KHK is R.I.P., and now I just can't believe that it's true! Very few real events in my life have been too good to believe. The 2006 electoral rout against the Republicans was one. The closure of KHK is another.

But it's a fact: KHK has fucking closed!

It's gone!

And it's because we protested them!

This is such a great event that I'm still in disbelief, and I don't know how to react. I'm completely numb!

For the first time in about a quarter-century, that particular program is not in business in the Cincinnati area. We exposed them, and folks didn't want that facility in their community - and parents pulled their kids out of the program.

And we're going to try to make sure Kids Helping Kids never comes back.

There's a maxim that says: First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. I think that applies perfectly here. Incompetence reigned at this program for decades under its various names. Even the structure of the program itself was a sign of gross incompetence. And in the end, it didn't pay off.

    This is a great time to remember, programs are vulnerable to the truth if we are willing to speak it!

    Tim, you were at every protest and you stood up for what you believed in. They told us we would be protesting 'til we were 89.....they were a little off seeing as how we are in our mid-thirties. Tim Brown, you rock!

    Abusive Programs can be and are being closed down!

    KHK is RIP !!!!!!
