EDITOR: When they asked George W. Bush about his drug habit, he said that
was just when he was young, which for him stretches from birth to age 40.
But when he was governor, Bush backed getting tough on drugs, which sent
thousands of young men and women to prison for possessing small amounts of
cocaine or marijuana.  Bush claims he's a compassionate conservative.  I
wonder if he has any compassion for all the young people he had locked away
for doing the same thing he did when he was young.  If Bush is so
compassionate, why did he mock and make fun of a repentant woman on death
row after he denied the pleas of religious leaders to spare her life?
