Comment: Parenthetical remarks by the Sun editor, headline by hawk

YOUR PARENTHETICAL remarks to Kathy Galbraith's letter in regard to
systematic corruption in the war on drugs show how out of touch with
reality you are. I ask you, did not a similar situation occur during
alcohol Prohibition? Of course, no one now is asking the source of the
Bronfman or Kennedy family fortunes. They, after all, are respectable.

The times, places and name changes, corruption and greed are static.
Brainless editors who are unable to do anything but parrot the status quo
and kowtow to perceived authority would be better not showing their
ignorance for all the world to see.

(We disagree on the pervasiveness of the systemic crisis in drugs. The war
isn't important, the dependency issue is.)
