The Major Media are full partners in the War. We must do what we can to
lambaste their lack of journalistic integrity and impartiality. In this, we
may find ourselves with unforeseen support.

In watching this NBC Report on methamphetamine in Oklahoma, it seemed like
NBC was directing drug policy.
The last sentence of the report sais the surest way to
fight the meth problem is with swift, severe penalties for
drug sellers and treatment for users.

Like severe penalties will stop the meth problem.

A bit broader than I would couch it. The major media and in particular the 
print media has largely swung towards pro reform with plenty of 
backsliding. In the broadcast media radio is leaning pro reform. Major 
broadcast networks still need a great deal of work but are vastly more 
balanced than 5 years ago. We've made some great strides and will make more 
in 2001.

Ronnies grandson a potsmoker? No! Can it be?
I am so sick of lawmakers hypocrisy.  Is there somewhere we can start
cataloging these "indescretions"  to show they are no different than the
unwashed masses, just treated differently by the media and courts?
