I guess it's a good news...

...bad news thing...
On the one hand, its patients are all policemen. On the other hand, those policemen are no longer on the street, trying to feed heroin and opium addictions that can easily cost triple their official salaries.

The country still supplies 90 percent of the world’s heroin.
Hmmm... sounds to me like a country that still could use a little bit of adult supervision.

For their sake and ours.

...claims fresh victims...
It intends to acquire 4.9 acres of border land on a dairy farm owned for three generations by the Rainville family. Last month, the Rainvilles learned that if they refuse to sell the land for $39,500, the government intends to seize it by eminent domain.

“They are trying to steamroll us," said Brian Rainville, 36, a high school government and civics teacher whose grandfather bought the farm in 1946 and whose parents and two brothers run it now. “We have a buyer holding a gun to our head saying you have to sell or else."
Isn't this the same President... who just reached out to Hamid Karzai's drug-dealing brother?

Good grief.
