It would be unfair for him to be locked up with a guy doing ten years for selling pot. That's not the kind society America aspires to be.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

If convicted, Hilton could face up to 20 years in prison, authorities said.
I'd like to bet everything I own on the way way way way under. Hell, I might take the under on "slap on the wrist."

Back in the early days of LSD, it was mostly connected to CIA researchers and the very well connected. One richy rich—I'm thinking it was Clare Boothe Luce—declared the wonders of the drug by saying it was too good for poor people. Drugs are always bad except for those who have proven their superiority thru the morality of the market.
