To The Editor:

The current conflict between the city police and local potheads 
strikes me as a struggle between the hard of thinking and the hard of hearing.

The cops evidently haven't heard that the laws of Canada do not 
rigidly apply to The Republic of Kootenay. We pay the Crown her taxes 
and in return we expect to be left alone, to dream our own dreams 
instead of passively sucking in the American Nightmare via CNN and 
CBC. Of course this dulls our intellectual capacity so that we find 
it harder and harder to tell the difference between a Republican and 
a Democrat, a George Bush and a Steven Harper, an authoritarian cop 
and a little fascist.

One has to watch out for little fascists tho - they are like little 
pot plants. If you feed and water them they grow up to become big 
continental fascists supporting the North American One Nation Under 
God that Bush and his friends have in mind.

There is a cure for the fascist tendency however. I recommend two or 
three tokes of Kootenay Green every night.
