Putting your principles into action, the hard way

From the WaPo’s Reliable Source column:

A Different Kind of Joint Session

• Last week the Capitol Police busted a young intern working for Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) for toting a baggie of pot and a bong into the Cannon House Office Building

The bit goes on to talk about one of the seven (!) people in America who have legal access to medical marijuana (no, I didn’t know there were any, either), but the reason I blogged this was simply to say that there’s something just so right about an aide to a former Libertarian Party Presidential candidate getting busted for bringing pot (not to mention a bong) to work. I’ll bet when he goes for a smoke break, people go with him. Via Rob.

    Anyway, below the line of asterisks, you should, but you won’t, find the entire comment, appended to the Friday, April 23, 2004 entry in the Hammerdown weblog with the U.R.L, and I copy and paste,

    To be frank, I’m going this route to avoid the slings and arrows of outraged wowsers, the vast majority of whom seem to be pro-Bush partisans. Anyway, please do read the “permissible” part of the comment.

    . . . I’d like you to consider reading the text for a “state of the union” address that I believe is imperative for this country of ours. To get to it, all you need do is click on the below enclosed U.R.L

    By the way, the proprietors of the website have provided a couple ways for you to leave your comments.

    hey, i just found out about the legal medical marijuana recipients last week, courtesy of Penn & Teller’s HBO show. i don’t recall the name of the recipient they interviewed, but rare bone disorder makes it sound like the same guy in the article.
