Re "Medical pot club is busted in S.F.," Photo, Feb. 13: Mullah John 
Ashcroft ascends the minaret on Feb. 12 and proclaims a day of extreme 
expected terror, double-plus extra alert. Sure enough, at 6:30 a.m., 
dynamite detonates in San Francisco, blowing the door off the Harm 
Reduction Center.

When terror is dispensed at the dispensary in a political assault, can 
Kristallnacht be far off? Lead Puritan Bush has loosed his mullahs Asa 
Hutchinson of the Drug Enforcement Administration and drug czar John P. 
Walters to advance against California, and our state attorney general turns 
the other cheek.

Midday, Bush announces another pogrom against drug users, this one to run 
for five years, wasting $19.2 billion and thousands more American families. 
Promotion of the general welfare this is not.

Wrapping up the day, Mullah Hutchinson delivers another affront to 
intelligence and is jeered by the usually polite Commonwealth Club. His 
only allies in San Francisco are his security detail.

This war displays the sad victory of capitalism over democracy. How can 
they expect anything other than revolt? How insultingly un-American. 
Totally legalize cannabis now.
