Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

San Francisco Enables Heroin Addicts

In a push to make it safer to be addicted to heroin, intravenous cocaine, and meth, San Francisco is planning to open a safe-injection room, where addicts can feel at home to shoot up under nurse supervision.

Lisa Leff reports:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- City health officials took steps Thursday toward opening the nation's first legal safe-injection room, where addicts could shoot up heroin, cocaine and other drugs under the supervision of nurses.

Hoping to reduce San Francisco's high rate of fatal drug overdoses, the public health department co-sponsored a symposium on the only such facility in North America, a four-year-old Vancouver site where an estimated 700 intravenous users a day self-administer narcotics under the supervision of nurses.

This is not a decision to make things better for drug addicts. This is a decision to give up, and let drug addicts pretend that their addiction is okay. And it will attract even more addicts to San Francisco.
