If The Times is going to write about the U.S. Drug Enforcement
Administration, please don't waste precious manpower and newsprint on
another puff piece like "California Operations Put a Face on Minority
Gains at DEA" (March 23).

There are many pressing issues to write about; e.g., the DEA's ungodly
$19.2-billion budget and its ideology-inspired crusade against medical
marijuana. And besides, we already know why the DEA is hiring
minorities: It makes it easier to bust minorities and continue filling
our prisons with nonviolent drug offenders.
