By the way, on the "Rush and Oxycotton" issue... I can certainly sympathize with the horror of drug addiction, and I can agree with those of my readers (who emailed me about the issue) saying that taking cheap shots at Rush does no good for the fight to switch the U.S. to a saner and more humanitarian policy on drug addiction.
Still, let's be honest about one thing: there's no way that Rush's travails are going to lead to him advocating harm reduction, and if he does, he'll just get ignored. The attitude is a symptom of a larger problem, and Rush is a major factor in that problem's promulgation. He also called Chelsea Clinton a dog on the air, so I hope I can be forgiven for not being, well, forgiving.
