    They told us they had this list 4 years ago. Not progress progress would be the media actually following up on that from then and telling us whom is alive or whom is still on that list. A new list and new name for same existing program is just another distraction that's taking advantage of everyone.

    Follow the money: Do you think drug operations give money to politicians, states attorneys, judges? Do you think all confiscated drugs and cash wind up in the evidence room? Who is profiting by having the "known 1400" out of prison conducting business? Realistic solutions are 1) Martial law (expensive and intrusive) or 2) Legalize and tax drugs (use proceeds for treatment and public information campaigns).

    I lived down south a stretch, Chicago and Uptown are in a vein or two the most northenly of southern places.

    "Pan American"

    I have heard your stories about your fast trains

    But now I'll tell you about one all the southern folks have seen

    She's the beauty of the southlands listen to that whistle scream

    It's that Pan American on her way to New Or-leans.
