RHINO HERE: Today I attended a conference in Los Angeles entitled "Breaking The Chains - People Of Color and The War On Drugs". Organized by The Drug Policy Alliance (formerly the Lindesmith Center-Drug Policy Foundation) it's a groundbreaking event addressing the damaging impacts of the war on drugs on people of color. To connect with an organization striving hard and effectively to make a difference, VISIT:
I'm still reeling from the story of the co-op of sick and dying women being raided for growing marijuana for medical use by cancer and AIDS patients. But its the weekend and I'm supposed to make you laugh. So TRY THIS LINK:

A Jewish man was riding on the subway reading a copy of Arab World News. A friend of his, who happened to be riding in the same subway car, noticed this strange phenomenon. Very upset, he approached the newspaper reader:
"Moshe, have you lost your mind? Why are you reading that garbage newspaper?" Moshe replied: "I used to read the Jewish newspaper, but what did I find? Jews being persecuted, Israel being attacked, Jews disappearing through assimilation and intermarriage, Jews living in poverty.
So I switched to Arab World News. Now what do I find? Jews own all the banks, Jews control the media, Jews are all rich and powerful, Jews rule the world. The news is so much better."
