Re: "Wrong choice" (April 19 letter). Writer Doreen Burke spent an entire 
letter praising the virtue of making the "right choice" (her choice), but 
at the same time berates marijuana advocate Marc Emery for providing 
another choice.

What she really wants is for her choice to be the only choice. And that 
would be no choice at all.

The ad hominem reference to Mr. Emery as a corporate entity, as if his is 
the only one that exists, is also arguable when you consider the corporate 
prison/industrial war package being sold by schools today that are so 
Orwellian, a sizable fraction of students can't swallow it without chasers 
of Ritalin.

Methinks I smell some hypocrisy here.
