YOU HAVE previously referred to Bill Kaufmann in your parenthetical
comments as an idealist, but "War on drugs disastrous failure" (May
11) proves he is a realist who's done his homework.

Your capitulation on this issue is a clear message the Sun is not
willing to sacrifice the truth to maintain the slowly eroding status
quo of prohibition. Supporting a repeal of these insidious laws
reveals intelligence and pragmatism. Or is it just plain, old, common
sense to abandon a sinking ship?
