COLVILLE, Wash. -- I am writing in response to "19 Mexicans slain; drug feud
is blamed" (News, Sept. 18). I feel great sadness for the families and
friends of the men, women and children of El Sauzal, Mexico, who were
brutality murdered by alleged members of a drug cartel.

Unfortunately, this terrible waste of human life will only continue, and not
just in Mexico but on our own streets, until the tremendous profits are
removed from the black market that now controls so-called illegal drugs.

Until our nation's drug policies take a turn toward reality, this sort of
insane waste will occur again and again.
