Y'all were in a major article about the same thing in USA Today a couple of weeks ago, now this. Austin just can't seem to stay out of the news on this. Seems it's "ground zero" in the drug epedemic. I'm so happy every time I think about my hard earned tax dollars being spent to subsidize welfare and food stamps for a bunch of people who can lay around all day pushing needles full of poison into their veins. Keep telling me how great your little town is. Meanwhile, I better get back to work. I'm sure the Democrats are hard at work thinking of new taxes to impose on us hard working, productive members of society.

Raoul Duke: We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, laughers, screamers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get into locked a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.
