I was reading some comments from Martha recently and she said she was
furious with River and the people who enabled him for his overdosing.
She didn't like the fact he was almost being martyred and described
his as a brilliant boy with alot of problems. It's strange that
River's death continues to stir up so much emotion in people after 11
years.

Hi TOM!
I think Martha made these statments soon after River died. What
I got out of it was that she resented the media's turning an ugly,
squalid, useless, DIDN'T-NEED-TO-BE death into a martyrdom. I think
that in her view, the idea of "martyrdom" was pretty far away from
River's reality and tended to excuse and exonerate those who could
have helped him...and she didn't want that.
