Note: Parenthetical remark by the Sun editor; headline by newshawk


I'D LIKE to respond to the comment "Dope is for dopes" in the April 14 
Letters to the editor. So it's OK to die from drinking, get AIDS from anal 
sex or die from lung cancer at huge cost to medicare, self-actualize with 
Prozac, come down with Valium, warp your mind with e-mail porn, pump 
yourself up with Viagra and have an abortion if you forget your 
morning-after pill. But God help you if you smoke marijuana? Am I missing 
something? Are you too much of a dope to spell hypocrisy?
