Well! No one else will respond, so it will be my duty to bring reality to M. Russell's column of several weeks ago.
The old cry baby liberal mantra that drug addiction is a ''disease'' fits perfectly with the famous ''it's not my fault'' excuse. I am curious about this so-called disease of heroin, coke, crack, etc. Perhaps the scourge of these poisons fell on our land like the gentle rain from Heaven!
Oh, I agree there's ignorance alright and a drug addict and their enablers have got most of it. To you I say this - it's your fault you got there - not mine. I have kept my nose and arm clean, but now I help pay for your mistakes. The American Way.
