The Fight for Reason, Knowledge and Understanding Continue...

Pardon me while I gloat.

Yesterday I posted Margaret Kopala's editorial from the Ottawa Citizen in defense of the RCMP's stance against Insite.

Today, the Sun published the same piece.

Then, pardon me, while I cry.

Opiate trial results are encouraging

We have to overcome our squeamishness and start using what works for addiction

This was the editorial headline in the Sun this morning.

Giving heroin and other substitutes to addicts is the oldest strategy in the books. There is nothing new and nothing holy or encouraging or effective about it.

It is a defeatist, cynical approach that says, "You cannot be helped, so we will keep you doped up in the hope that you will steal less from us."

This latest Dr. Frankenstein obscenity cost $8 Million, which monies could have provided treatments spaces for 160 real men and women.

It is bad enough that the nutty psudo-scientists and social engineers promote these hollow ideas.

That the press trumpets them is horrifying.
