Michael Jackson: guilty or innocent? Marijuana:
good or evil? Deep Throat: hero or villain?
For starters, your questions are in reverse
order of significance. Which, actually, is an apt reflection
of the maladjusted priorities of this modern world.
But I'll answer them in your order.
Michael Jackson: Aside from any damage to
possible victims, it just doesn't matter!
Marijuana: Anyone who's been keeping up with
this column would already know the answer. Legalize, tax,
solve endless problems, move on. The reason marijuana
is even illegal anymore is because the current U.S. regime
needs something it can call success. And spending a ton of
money to round up a bunch of peaceful pot smokers is as easy
as invading Iraq while Osama is on the loose. The long-range
prospects are about the same, too.
Deep Throat: Considering world events of
recent weeks and months (mounting death tolls in Iraq, British
memos, falsified climate reports, lazy mainstream media, et
al), we could use another Deep Throat. Now. More than ever.
I keep hearing murmurs that Cheney will run
for president in '08. Could this really happen? It makes
me sick already.
I hope it happens.
Hear me out: For one thing, the
GOP has to run somebody, right? Why not have it be
the real "brains" behind what will by then be
nearly eight years of ugliness, warmongering, deception
and outright lies?
I'd love to see the big Dick's record spotlighted
by the campaign process. I think you'd find that the current
V.P. is the most beatable candidate the red-state people
could possibly choose.
