Once, drugs came in at ports of entry, but it is much easier just to give backpacks to illegals .... to get the drugs into the United States. I am not saying this. It is being said by the U.S. Bor- der Patrol and Homeland Security officials. The drug epidemic is everywhere across the .... nation and has hit Boston big-time. Close the border and see the drug epidemic lose steam. Everybody here is Up in Arms Now When the drug crisis was an inner-city cri- sis, few seemed to care. But now that drugs have overwhelmed suburban communities, all Of a .............. sudden everyone is demanding action. . Drugs aren't a city thing or a wealth versus " poverty thing. Drugs are a poison that attacks all of society. Too many young people are dying .............. ' from overdoses with easy access and cheap .... - prices. :: Not a Fan of Mine, I Guess Recently, "Not a Big Fan" of mine emailed me to ask what was wrong with me. The ii writer called my piece on the renaming of Mt. McKinley a "snarky little article" on September 1 1th. For the record, I do not hate Obama and I | I am not obsessing over him. Personally, I think | | 1 the American people should be taking out a | ! 1 restraining order on our Commander-in-Chief.
