A Local Columnist On Rush

Steve Rose, a local columnist, looks at what Rush should have said about drugs. Too bad he didn't go all the way and say they should be made legal. I know drugs are stupid, but I'd like to try treating them as a public health issue, rather than a criminal justice issue, please. Off topic money quote:
And now I want to talk about Hillary Clinton, and how she is, behind the scenes, running for president in 2004, and why Senator Clinton would be the most dangerous and destructive president since Lyndon Johnson.
Here's a thesis: Lyndon Johnson was the most corrupt president we've had since Teapot Dome, but not through a lot of illegal actions. He just bought our votes more cynically than any President, ever. Discuss.
