At Least They Said Please

I don't want to paint myself as an advocate, because in general, drugs are not really a good choice. But the absurdity of our drug laws, and the money we spend on this so called drug war is downright criminal. I was watching The Daily Show the other night, and they were talking about the "centrists" - people who find themselves in the middle of the madness, people who are really in the majority, people who don't get up on soapboxes either. Jon Stewart suggested that if they were to take to the streets, they would shout "be reasonable!".

 

I want that as a bumpersticker. Remember, the revolution is just a T-Shirt away.

 

If you're curious, while I'm rambling, this is "The Fence" at Carnegie Mellon. The Fence, on the Cut--the grassy area of campus between Forbes Avenue and Hunt Library--is the university billboard for student groups. The Fence must be painted in its entirety and no painting may be done during daylight hours. Students complete their painted message or advertisement and then guard their work through the night to make sure no one paints over it before sunrise.
