Super Bowl Arrestee

Timmy Smith had the oddest NFL career. The running back played only three years and gained only 602 yards combined. (He actually played for Dallas one year). And then there was that odd Super Bowl in 1988. After gaining only 407 yards over 14 games that seaason, he gained 204 yards in the Super Bowl to lead the Redskins to the championship. It was his three hours of fame - never to be repeated. Well, at least good fame. Today he was arrested by the Feds for "conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine".

The money pit known as the War on Drugs continues.

I can't understand anyone that thinks we should continue "The War on Drugs"

ah, yes - meanwhile American mothers of little boys past age three are rushing out to get their sons football suits - so they can grow up and be just like this jerk.

...what a pathetic story!

We should move the war to those who handle illegal drugs in this country.

You can't legislate morality.

You can however enforce laws. Illegal drugs have little to do with morality, but a lot to do with unlawfulness.

But we can't enforce that law. If we could there would be no drug problem in this country but there is. The war isn't being won.
