This is something I'd love to have some back-up on for the letter I'm  
writing. The Oregonian does a fair job of publishing reformers letters.  
Someone with a titled organization position could get an OpEd published  
I'd reckon.

John Walters... needs a good whacking:

METHAMPHETAMINE AWARENESS DAY
A day to reflect on the fight against meth

> Today is National Methamphetamine Awareness Day -- the first time a  
> president has designated a day to focus national attention on  
> methamphetamine, an extremely destructive and harmful drug.
>
> For parents, today is a reminder of the importance of talking to our  
> children about dangerous drugs. For our youth, it is an opportunity to  
> reaffirm a commitment to a drug-free future. For those struggling with  
> addiction, it is an occasion to seek treatment. And for all Americans,  
> it is an opportunity to thank law enforcement officers, treatment  
> counselors and prevention advocates whose efforts have contributed to  
> a nearly 20 percent decline in drug use among American youth over the  
> past four years.

sigh...

> all Americans, especially our youth, should reaffirm their commitment  
> to a drug-free future.
