Faces of Meth

I was watching CBS News' "Up to the Minute" show this morning while I ate lunch. They had a story called "Faces of Meth Addiction", about a program in Portland, Oregon, where one of the local deputies is collecting before and after pictures of methamphetamine addicts to show how quickly their addiction takes its toll on their appearance. Not only does the drug damage the brain, but it makes people downright fugly in a matter of months. If you click on that link to the CBS story, there's a pop-up photo essay link on the right side titled "Faces of Addiction." They are not for the faint of heart. I really don't understand why people want to take a drug that will destroy their brains, make them psychotic and make them ugly as well.

Whoa! Those pictures are chilling. And so so sad. Can you imagine being a parent and seeing your child, even an adult child, undergo such a hideous transformation? I hope the pictures work to keep the kids away from that stuff.

They just busted 3 people here, last weekend at Wal-Mart trying to buy too much cold medicine. Their vehicle had a "strong chemical odor." One look at their mug shots on the news and you can tell they're seriously messed up.

"President Bob" -- Was that you wearing that "loser" shirt last night? Hahaha!

And riddle me this, Bozo Bob: What is "riddilin"? Perhaps you meant "ritalin." Moron.

If you don't like what I have to say, go read something else, and FOAD while you're at it.

Have a nice day.
