RAVE Statute Update...
    #1525083 - 05/06/03 06:08 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Just an update here, for anyone who followed this...I posted in News too, but there was some discussion about it here, so...

In this weeks Newsweek, theres a little item "A Blueprint for Busts". It talks about how the act, now called the Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act, was quietly attached to the Amber Alert bill. Apparently, there's at least some anger in the Senate over this, and I quote from the article....

"Senator Patrick Leahy voted for the Amber package, despite some reservations, because, he says, he didn't want to vote against a child-safety bill. But Leahy has promised to revisit the issue, telling Newsweek in a statement that concerns about the bill "deserve a fuller hearing."

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
