The methadone story has found its way from The Courier, where it began last Friday with Mark Hasiuk's excellent piece, to Sunday's Province to this morning's Sun.
Good to see that the story has some legs.
But will anything be done? All of the usual suspects - the politicos and the professional "Colleges" - all claim to having deep investigations in process.
Here in BlogLand, every time I have every mentioned the word methadone in public - and I've been doing that for only 40 years now - as predictable as rain, voices emerge from the shadows to extol the virtues of this poison and its deadly, destructive official uses.
All I can say is thank you for your comments and I hope that one day you will find the strength to move on without this entirely unnecessary drug as your main companion in life.

For a year and a half now, I have been frothing at the gills, exhorting Roger Federer to come to net, to serve and volley, to play more aggressively.
Good man, he finally listened to me.
Yesterday, in defeating And Murray handily in 3 straight sets, he became the first tennis player of any of the 12 genders to win five Wimbledons in a row and five US Opens in a row.
He was magnificent and a joy to watch.

The Prime Minister of Thailand, Samak Subderavej, may have to step down from office.
He is accused of taking money from a private company to host his TV cooking show.
The show is called "Tasting and Grumbling."
Let us not ask why Canadian PM's have never had cooking shows?
Let us not ask if Ryan Baloney's son can host "Canadian Idol," could Papa Gucci's cooking show not be far behind?
Let us not ask if Kim Campbell lives on take out.
Instead ask who is prepared to back my new TV culinary hit, "Cooking & Kvetching and Noshing from every pot."
