I disagree with your Aug. 26 characterization of New Mexico Gov. Gary

While the governor's "monotonous support" for "telling the truth" to
anyone who'll listen might upset the ears of your editorial staff,
legal reform associated with this nation's failed drug war is one of
the most important and most ignored issues in both national and local
political agendas.

I applaud Gov. Johnson's vocal activism and pray that others may be as
courageous as he, even if it means the awful torture of being subject
to petty criticism by the editorial staff at a newspaper out of his,
and its own, political jurisdiction.
