Something that Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said the other day in
his speech to local dignitaries struck me as one more reason our
troubled society has deteriorated to a level never imagined. Weis said
he is giving up on trying to stop the sale of drugs in a large part of
Chicago by gangs that ruthlessly control these neighborhoods, in favor
of concentrating police efforts on reducing violence.

In other words, he's saying it's OK to sell dope to a population
already overcome with social problems, as long as these
poisoners-of-society don't kill too many people. Another downward step
in this decaying democracy which held so much promise to the people of
the world in past years.

Things go from bad to near impossible, it seems.
