Burning Books: Matchbooks That Is May 17, 2005 - waff.com
Box after box. The Dekalb County Drug Enforcement unit unloaded two pick-ups full of matches. At least 75 cases and thousands of matches. All of them were seized in only two cases in the last year.
"One of the cases I think we got fifty cases of matches off that," Darrell Collins with the DeKalb County Drug Unit says.
Since when did matches become illegal? When their striker plates started being used to make crystal meth.
So the drug unit had to let them burn. Going out to the Fort Payne landfill and ironically burning what is supposed to be used to start fire, now used in one of the most harmful and dangerous drugs the unit's ever seen.
"The striker plates on matches contain red phosphorous, red phosphorous is an item, a chemical needed in the manufacture of crystal meth," Collins says.
As the massive pile goes to ashes, the unit stands hopeful.
Better for good matches to burn, than good people to burn up in the fire of methamphetamine.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"
"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
