If the drug war is of interest to you, do not miss "Bush's Born-Again Drug War" over at Alternet. It's written by Paul Armentano, the senior policy analyst for The NORML Foundation in Washington, DC..

Listen to George Walker Bush speak about substance abuse and it's apparent that one is listening to a preacher, not a president. "There are faith-based organizations in drug treatment that work so well because they convince a
person to turn their life over to Christ," Bush divulged to the religious journal Christianity Today. "By doing so, they change a person's heart [and] a person with a changed heart is less likely to be addicted to drugs and alcohol."

Despite US Constitutional restrictions requiring a separation of church and state, Bush's ardent Judeo-Christian faith ­ the President is a practicing Methodist who "accepted Jesus Christ into [his] life" in 1986 ­ remains the staple of his administration's anti-drug platform.
