OK, the second most ironic thing I read today

Money that cops confiscated from drug dealers is being used to pay for "sober" after prom parties. The county guvmint is distributing $2,000 to each high school from a slush fund that was funded with confiscated drug money.

"That is an extremely generous contribution that is going to be greatly appreciated," said school system spokeswoman Patti Caplan. "I know how much time and effort the PTAs put into raising money for the post-prom parties. This is a very positive use for those funds."

Ummm, no, it's not a generous contribution. The cops took the money from drug dealers, and now Ulman is distributing it to high schools. There is no generosity at work here. You can't be generous with money that was never really yours to begin with.

So do you not support

a) alcohol-free prom parties;

b) the government stealing from drug dealers

c) legalization of drugs so that revenue from drug transactions are taxable and laundered, if you will, and thus appropriately acquired to pay for alcohol-free prom parties that you either do or do not support?

All I said was that this contribution was not generosity. Why are you trying to misinterpret what I write?
