Our glorious government is force feeding prisoners at Guantanamo. Can't have them starving to death, that would be wrong? Older son is reading bits from Harper's Magazine: more people committed suicide in the USA last year than were killed in car wrecks. One of the arguments for legalizing drugs is that people wouldn't be killed by accidental overdoses because you would be reasonably well assured that you knew the potency of the drug you were taking. This trailer makes me wonder. I mean Oxycontin is commercially produced, the dosage is well know. So what's going on? Do all Oxycontin pills look alike, even though they are wildly different doses? Are people deliberately killing themselves? Or do they just keep shooting up more and more in hope of getting the really glorious feeling, and eventually they take more than their body can cope with?
