    >>The other day, someone at a store in a small Midwestern town read that a
    >>methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farm house in the adjoining
    >>county and he asked me a rhetorical question, "Why didn't we have a drug
    >>problem when you and I were growing up?
    >>
    >>It just so happened that I had saved something that had been sent to me a
    >>few weeks ago. So, I printed off a copy and took it to him the next day.
    >>I smiled when I handed it to him and said, "I did have a drug problem
    >>when I wuz a kid growing up on the farm in southeast Missouri or North
    >>Dakota or Nebraska or Kansas." Here's what the sheet said:
    >>
    >>I had a drug problem when I was young:
    >> - I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
    >> - I was drug to church for wedding and funerals.
    >> - I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the
    >>weather.
    >> - I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and
    >>teachers.
    >> - I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told
    >> a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect,
    >>spoke
    >> ill of the teacher or the preacher. Or if I didn't put forth my best
    >>effort in
    >> everything that was asked of me.
    >> - I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and flower beds and
    >> cockleburs out of dad's soybean fields.
    >>
    >>Those drugs are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in
    >>everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack
    >>or heroin, and if today's children had this kind of drug problem, America
    >> might be a
    >>better place today.
