An Interesting Speculation

When the  Times deigns to print the story, it becomes news and thus makes it into other newspapers ( a truncated version of Seelye's front page article on the You Tube debte format appeared on the 12th page of today's SF Chronicle. Despite the apparent transparency of the novel format, there are still issues of fear and censorship that may keep any mention of either pot prohibition or the drug war from the questions Democratic candidates will be asked this evening. For example, how many young people submitting videos would want to be identified as pot users? Also, who gets to choose the videos that will be used?

In any event, it should be interesting to see if the drug war is treated as a sacred cow, as usual, or is actually included in the "debate."
