Thomas Friedman's outrage is just a mask for his anti-Americanism. To paraphrase the White House Mr. Friedman needs to seriously think about what he says before he puts pen to paper. After all people could die because of his remarks. Why does Thomas Friedman hate America so?
(Talk about being late to hit the dock—hey Tom what took you so long?)
UPDATE This fella here says it oh so much better! What oh what would the baby jesus do?
I love it, in the gag-me reflex sort of way, when idiots write about drugs. I suspect the fair lass Larissa Lytwyn doesn't even realize alcohol is a drug. So is asprin. There is one primary rule of discourse in the drug war. If you do not use the word drug very precisely you show yourself to be an ignorant pup who has no business with a pen. Look Larissa, marijuana is not "the top drug of choice among Americans". As long as you, as a supposed educated person, insist on using the word drug interchangeably with the word drug to denote two different things then I can only laugh at your ass and wonder how it is your employer can justify your pay. And what the hell does "[d]ue to the regeneration of THC over the past few decades, marijuana is far more potent today than it was in the 1960s and 1970s" mean? What are you high? THC regenerates? Learn to write Larissa and then tell us what you really think. How can the Eastman Courier publish this trash? Call (203) 926-2080 and ask the editorial page editor how. Let me know if you get a response.
This is a peculiar webpage. Non-sequitor: I read recently that a leading Evangelical thinker predicts in 20 years there will be more Christians than total human beings on the planet. Such is the wisdom of the Lord.
