Speaking of Dosage

Troops battle 10-foot marijuana plants.

The troops are Canadian and they’re fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, who are hiding in “almost impenetrable forests of 10-feet-high marijuana plants.”

From the article:

One soldier told him later: “Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I’d say ‘That damn marijuana’.”

Reminds me of that Bill Hicks skit of God creating the world: “Oh my me…. I left f@&!ing pot everywhere.”

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
