According to "The Main Thing," the Editorial Board apparently thinks
that people who get up and express their contrary opinion at school-
sponsored drug forums are attention-seekers. I also know that when the
`Star-Telegram uses the term `sideshow,' it is intended as a pejorative.

Those of us in the movement that I know may be offended, but we are
not stigmatized. We are not going to shut up and sit down, and we are
rather proud of that.

Lest you editorialists be consumed in your own sense of having the
answers, let me point out that your championed solutions haven't
worked yet. So think a bit about this: Insanity is continuing to do
the same things and expecting different results.
