Most importantly this week's edition provides the most compelling reason why cocaine should be quality controlled and legal -- Cocaine cut with the veterinary drug levamisole that eats your flesh!
Whoopie! Also you will find out the weird correlation between genius and drug use, what booze your favorite authors guzzle (I'm your favorite author, and I guzzle Cherry Dr. Pepper) why Robin Williams is a wild a crazy guy but not using drugs, and we can all wonder how Michael Jackson could dance like that when he was smacked out. Maybe the best story (aside from updates on our Reel Recovery Film Festival) is about the Christian motivational speaker found passed out in his car drunk out of his skull. He's the guy who tells us that "dateable girls know how to shut up." He is not the guy, although he could be, who told the joke: "Why do we need shelters for battered women? Because they don't know when to shut up."
All this and much more in this latest edition of the bulletin that has news you can use and opinions that won't drive you to drink.
