Comment: Parethetical remarks and headline by the Sun editor


THANK YOU for the coverage of Gil Puder's brave and visionary views on the
failure of the war on drugs. While Puder made perfect sense, drug unit head
Sgt. Mike Cullen offered a predictably self-interested response: The police
need more money for drug law enforcement. This is a joke.

Stated another way, the joke goes something like this: Question -- how many
drug warriors does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer -- nobody's quite
sure, but they are going to need a lot more money and complete allegiance
from the public to do the job right.
