There is no climate change that can be affected by Man. Chicken Little is dead. Waste of time and money. Garry Trudeau is a leftist.

PC your "sick hearted" remarks in regard to the chemically addicted are completely off-base, insensitive, and ignorant. While I agree it's a "Valley" in context to the story, the vast majority of chemical dependency are FAR FROM folk who have sick hearts. Brain dysfunction perhaps but most have Hearts of Gold and would give their shirts off their backs if circumstances allowed. Not a pass nor excuse for the addicted, but a gentle reminder that they are people too, with ALOT to give when afforded the opportunity.

Paramount has announced that the last 35mm film will be Anchorman in December...the other studios will follow soon in my opinion. I hope Lake Placid and AuSable do well with their fundraising! The end of 35mm is imminent...

bjccd5: You may have read the editorial wrong. It didn't say addicts are sick-hearted; it said dealers are — those who "prey on others, ruining their lives and taking their money with these devastating chemicals." And no, you can't really have a heart of gold and sell ****** to people at the same time. Such a heart would not let one take advantage of addicts in that way. One would have to stifle that cry, thus reducing one's capacity for sympathy, or not be able to hear it in the first place.

H-e-r-o-i-n is apparently a blocked word in comments on this website, though not in articles. Interesting.

no, I didn't read the editorial wrong....and no, the word "Dealer" did not appear in the one I read, so perhaps you read it wrong. I do, understand the undertones and assumptions one might gather from the verbiage used in the editorial. However, implications are far from professional, and I trust that most of these "predator's" you refer to are addicts (my own hypothesis), hence chemically brain altered, not heart AILED. I DO AGREE WITH YOU IN THE INSTANCES OF SCUM who deal and are consciously ruining people's lives for financial gain.

Are drug dealers sick hearted? Maybe. But how many bar owners do you know who make most of their money from alcoholics? I don't see a moral difference so big that one should be an accepted member of the community and the other should go to prison. Long as the demand is there, someone is going to supply it.

Great point Omar w/ a lil' flaw....One is of legal community acceptance, and the other ISN'T!!!! Yet, similarities are scary in that the scenarios share, for the most part, GOOD People have been caught up in addiction, and that's the shame and problem!!!!!!
