You confused the issue with the Monday story headlined "Double slaying
probably drug-related, police say."

Remember the famous St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929 when Al
Capone's men gunned down men from the competing Bugs Moran gang?

Would you say that was "alcohol-related"? Hardly. Those thugs didn't
kill each other because they were drunk; they killed each other over
money, and the gang wars stopped when the prohibition on alcohol was

The Keller slayings, like the 1920s Chicago slayings, were
prohibition-related, not drug-related. Let's put the blame where it
