Issue #135 Please spend a minute watching this video clip (in full screen); not only is it shocking, it's the basis of this issue. (Here's a similar video if you'd like to see more.) America's inner cities have long been the scene of drunkards and drug addicts (some of whom are mentally ill) getting drunk or high, usually resulting in homelessness. In recent years, however, there has been an explosion of addiction that now threatens the very fabric of society. In future issues, I'll write about why this is happening and who is behind it.
That 'tranq video' hit like a 2X4 between the horns. I thought fentanyl was bad (of course it is) but this is frightening. It's also overwhelming. How does a society respond to something like this? So far we turn a blind eye, or blame Trump.
