the appeal of meth

I’m sitting here in the dark, barely awake, struggling to read this article on meth use among young professionals in Denver. I know it wasn’t the author’s intent, but it’s got me thinking pretty positively about about the drug. (Just think of how much I could read if I could stay awake for 72 hours straight!) I can see the appeal, but I’d never do it. One of the nice things about living so close to an area frequented by the frail and sunken-cheeked prostitutes of Ypsilanti, is that I get a vivid daily reminder of just how terribly destructive this particular drug really is.

    I used to poach eggs in a bong.

    Suddenly, this obscure old post is relevant again.

    How is it relevant, Robert? Is there talk of Palin having poached eggs in a bong?

    And, yes, Stella, Teddy Glass was a truly great American. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of him.
