Dear Editor,

The Lockney (TX) ISD School Board recently instituted mandatory drug
tests for students and teachers. Refusal to take the drug test is an
admission of guilt.

Non-participants should be arrested, photographed, fingerprinted, and
subjected to Warrantless Search by police. Their crimes should be
entered as aiding and abetting rebellion, public defiance of political
correctness, and seditious attempted use of liberty.

The Drug War has mutated into a drug virus more deadly than HIV. It
attacks the brain (speech center) and the spine (disconnecting it from
the brain), and the eyes (destroying cognition).

The virus thrives on fear and demagoguery. Ordinary people are driven
mad with fear of witches-I mean drugs-and  they develop a psychosis
that thirsts for blood and urine from teens

It kills rationality and common sense. Parents will no longer look at,
or talk to, their teens in order to examine their behavior or general
condition. And almost to a man, they abdicate responsible parenting
and promote state school/hospitals as the Final Solution.

Most tellingly, the virus affects the ability of public servants  to
distinguish fact from fiction. Some manifest a paranoid fear that
teens are a ward of the state.

They also assume they have unlimited, final authority. And so they
