Re: "Couple found dead in garage," Nov 18.  The drug warriors from President
Clinton, his Czar McCaffrey, and right on down to all the local DARE kids
are enriched in their position by their suicides.  Rather than face the
cruel and unusual prospect of life in prison for the crime of possession
less than an ounce of MARIJUANA and a speck of speed they opted for death in
their plea bargain.  And oh my, what a powerful message for the children!
Smoke a reefer and DIE! Our cowardly leaders need to stand up to the people
and admit that the War is a mistake, declare a Victory for Democracy, and
free the prisoners of war.  A Truth commission as in South Africa should be
constituted, and where appropriate, reparations paid to those owed.

The tyranny expressed in this War will find it's parallel in our British
colonial history. Just this sort of bumbling, arrogant malfeasance gives
rise to holidays like Bastille Day and our own Fourth of July.
