11. The DEA agents that I know are brave, courageous, honest,
dedicated, hard-working people who face threats to their own lives and families all the time. I admire them and am very glad
they are out there doing this work.

There is no profession that has no sinners, because all professions are filled by people. But I have to speak out when people come so close to saying that all or many police or politicians or whomever are corrupt, or even begin a conversation that may go that way. Hard as it is for some to believe, money and personal gain are really not the be-all or end-all for millions of good people.

The job of a DEA agent, to me, is incredibly frightening. I could never do it.

But I am so damn glad they do, and so are the mothers of drug addicts that I know.

How in the world legalizing cocaine and meth and heroin would improve the lives of the people I know who are
addicts, or the lives of their families, is just beyond my comprehension. Those who say it would solve the
problem never have explained this to me, except those who say let all the druggies do it till they die,
Darwinism, and I can't accept that.
