Thank you for your words--you can't imagine what they mean to me since you don't know me.
I'm the son of a 22-year Air Force NCO--the base commander's favorite bartender at Travis--and 8 more years at Joliet APSA during Vietnam.
I was only a baby in 1955 when Dad was set to get his 2nd lieutenant after rising from entry level Navy in WW2.
He and the boys went out drinking that weekend and he lost every stripe--busted down to buck private.
Put on antabuse and lithium--completely ****ed up his whole life and my Mother's.
This Nation will never deal with it's legal drug problems--cigarettes, alcohol,
pharmaceuticals (especially Oxy which leads our kids to Heroin)
I'm a retired chem/physics teacher who has lost three former students to heroin overdose in the last five years.
I'm in a HERO program here in Illinois and carry Narcon and a needle in case I come across an overdose.
I'm still tutoring and totally involved with our high school wrestling prograqm.
Thanks again for listening and what you said about alcohol .
Chemists Have Solutions .
I don't care who the parent or the kid is; it's repulsive. Also dumb when the kid is in his freaking 40's.
And cheap--did I mention cheap?
But I'm not a Republican.
Keep trying, tho'! Got to get all the dirt in the limelight before those mid-term elections!
