LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Ticked off and tailored

I ... I can't hold this in. The Indy's cheerleader, featured on the cover of the Best of the Triangle 2009 issue (July 10), would have immensely benefited from a couple of folks brandishing an iron and a handful of safety pins. The lovely Sona Desai is way unfortunately overshadowed by floppy contrast godets in the skirt and a top that's bordering on dolman sleeves.

Doesn't anybody care about FIT anymore? Damn!

Millions in support

Training teachers and parents of blind children goes further than just the children whose lives are saved by education at Governor Morehead School ("Behind the numbers, real people," by Fiona Morgan, June 10). Educating blind children, and those who work with them, saves the community millions in support. Closing this school with 100-plus years' experience would be a loss to the nation that can never be replaced.

Blind kids??? Seriously?

It seems like the government is cutting money from those in the population who most need it ("Behind the numbers, real people," by Fiona Morgan, June 10). Blind kids??? Seriously? We have to look out for those most vulnerable in America! It is a mark of a well-developed society.

Re(e)fer to instructions

I don't think we could ever win the war against terrorism and organized criminality without abandoning prohibition and prohibition philosophies ("That's some strong sage," by Matthew McGibney, June 10). All drugs should be made legal.

The dangerous ones, which are addictive and harmful, should either be sold in pharmacy with medical prescription or regulated in some way. The nondangerous ones, which do not lead to addiction (other than psychological) and are harmless, should be sold in the supermarket.

So, for example: Heroin should be sold in pharmacy with prescription. And cannabis, magic mushrooms and Salvia divinorum, frankly, in my opinion, should be sold in the supermarket, perhaps with a short user's manual.
