More Absurdity

Even though I have little time for this sort of thing, there are some news items which so perfectly illustrate the absurdity of our drug policy that I must point them out. One such appears in today's Salinas Californian. Consider what's reported there: at a time when the economy is threatened by inflation, we are engaged in a losing (and unnecessary) war against 'terror' and the tax burden has been cruelly shifted to the poor and the middle calss, our police 'heroes' in the front lines of the drug war are still able to get away with simultaneously admitting they are not up to the job and complaining they don't have nearly enough money to do it.

One is also forced to wonder when the drug policy 'reform' community will finally get around to asking the cops and feds to explain that mysteriously persistent popularity.

Oh, yes. Don't forget that although we are worried about global warming and the diminishing global supply of petroleum, NASCAR tacing is now our favorite sport.
