    I know that's virtually impossible for a liberal to comprehend. But we're out here, paying the freight.
    I wouldn't get too smug. It's not your fault you're not an addict.

    Yeah, don't you see, Erod? Since you can't prove you aren't a drug addict obviously you are an addict!

    Drug addicts literally can't imagine a life without drugs, so you can't expect them to ever understand that such a life is actually possible.

    I wasn't calling Erod a drug addict, I was just saying what's the point of going on how he advertises himself? Almost nobody advertises their faults, just as Hoffman didn't advertise he was a drug addict.

    And that makes what difference to you? You are the one defending the behavior and making a saint out of a junkie and attempting to demonize anyone that calls him what he is at his core. A drug addict that had no feelings or caring for his own children. So much so he couldn't stay straight long enough for them to grow up.

    I'm just saying, if you're so certain that you're foibles are acceptable, especially compared to Hoffman's, let's have them. Unless you'd rather you kept those to yourself?

    Wrong. Re-read the OP.

    and attempting to demonize anyone that calls him what he is at his core.
    Wrong again. But I am disappointed in anybody who feels the right to disregard him as nothing more than trash because he didn't live up their standard of perfection.

    A drug addict that had no feelings or caring for his own children.
    Telepathy is unproven by science.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    That is the thing that always gets me. Having been a social worker for drug addicts for years I know full well how hard addiction is for people... but in the end the thing all junkies need is some humility. All of them deep down have this superman complex that they will be the one that can handle it. When they get sober, the strength they feel from the recovery eats away at them... they are sure that THIS time they can handle it, and so on.

    But when they have kids the pure selfishness of addiction rears its ugly head. I fully understand Hoffman's battles with addiction. I have seen it often. That doesn't excuse the fact that this guy regularly and repeatedly chose getting high over his own kids. His kids will grow up without a dad because dad chose a needle over them.
