Regarding the editorial Thursday, "Drug-law issues switch directions":

In my book, John Sperling, George Soros and Peter Lewis are patriots of the
highest order. They have contributed their fortunes in order to change the
direction our country, which is now the world leader in the number of
prisoners and in the proportion of citizens who are in jail or prison.
That's thanks primarily to our counterproductive war on certain drug users.

Perhaps Sperling, Soros and Lewis could spend their money like other
billionaires - on trophy wives or trophy homes. Instead they spend much of
their money trying to re-transform the United States into the true "land of
liberty." - Kirk Muse Mesa
