@David: the people who are prime age for absorbing pop music (i.e., much younger than me, and I assume, you as well) will absolutely remember Taylor and Justin in 50 years. And they will "remember" the Beatles in more or less the same terms I remember Glenn Miller.
If DPD gave the same amount of attention to simple possession as it does to stop sign, crosswalk, and school zone violations, that'd be about right.
You don't have to weigh the harms of legal MJ (or any other drug) against a standard of no harm. You just have to weigh them against the harms of drug war, which are manifold.
Further, you don't have to support legalization of MJ (though I do, personally) to consider the routine use of military tactics and overwhelming force to serve drug warrants a bad thing.
I've always thought of Pat as more of a Smithers to Art Pope's Mr. Burns.
Though he looks like Milhouse.
@Ms. Lathrop--A quick Google search of your name + "pit bulls" indicates that you are an extraordinarily prolific and ubiquitous internet commentor on this subject. If you feel so strongly about this and are willing to devote so much time to it, why not write your own book, and lay off the (frankly creepy) fixation you seem to have on Ms. Dickey?
@ladylaw: you're citing an email that no one mentions anywhere else in local media that I can find (explosive devices stashed in and around government buildings is generally considered newsworthy) and your account was created the day you started posting this stuff. Please forgive us if we regard your claims as bullshit pending independent verification.
Nice talk and all, but the NC Dems aren't even fielding candidates in 1/4 of the state legislative races.
