I also want to point this appears to be part of an organized attempt by the old status quo to try to shape the community's attitude. Its as if their strategy is to enlist people on the outside to support their cause. Tony Newman makes his living promoting this sort of stuff in New York City. Chris Nunez, the first commenter on Tony's letter, tries to set a positive tone of supporting Tony. Chris had his own Special to the Sentinel a couple of months ago, "Chris Nunez : In the heart of the mean season." where he basically says we're mean and wrong to associate the homeless with crime. So these two say we are mean, backwards. Chris Nunez of Santa Cruz has amaster's degree in theology from the University of San Francisco, and is
a fellow in the graduate program in pastoral ministry at the Jesuit
School of Theology at Santa Clara University. When was the last time you heard a paster say you are mean? What pastor says that? I know the answer, one who has studied, but not experienced.

The 'medicalisation' of druguse. It's controlling.
Can't blame needle exchanges for the littered syringes. If they were made more accesible then almost everyone would go back and pick up their litter later to take them for exchange. Or, provide bins, like they do for dogs' waste...
