Comment: Parenthetical remarks by the Sun editor : headline by hawk


A THOUSAND miles of distance appear to have given Staff Sgt. Mike Cullen of
the Calgary Police Service the courage necessary for a groundless personal
attack, evidenced by his comments about me in Bill Kaufman's July 6 column.
This certainly contrasts with his silence at April's Fraser Institute
conference, when like all attendees he was invited to take the microphone
and publicly hold me accountable in person. Whether it's a lack of guts, or
simply that he has no evidence to support any disagreement, I'm not sure.

What I am sure of is that I'd be happy to publicly debate him on the illicit
drug issue anytime -- an offer I've made to many drug squad types and which
I've yet to have accepted. As far as being "out to lunch" goes, I'll be
doing that shortly and will enjoy my favorite wine, a nice B.C. pinot noir.
Taxpayers should be wary of the drug warrior's favorite whine, however, as
stated by Cullen himself -- give us more money!

(Well, Staff Sgt. Cullen?)
