I left off a few days ago talking about Ron Paul. I know, I know, he’s all over the Internet. Message boards are flooded by his diehard supporters.

The piece is also about the all-or-nothing attitude that pervades US politics.

Several states are petitioning the DEA to re-classify cannabis as a Schedule II substance. Good luck with that.
