Happy Birthday Theodor Seuss Geisel, as the author more famously known as Dr. Seuss would have been 108 years old today. This occasion is marked by today being NEA's Read Across America Day, which seems a pretty worthy cause.

What I love about the Netherlands article are these two paragraphs next to each other:

Another of those backing a ban, Christian Democrat legislator Coskun Coruz, said he hoped the ban would reduce consumption.

Studies show marijuana use in the Netherlands is roughly half that of the United States, where it is illegal.

I wonder just how many trillions of dollars America and Europe have lost during the "War on Drugs" whether directly syphoned from the economy into criminal gangs, spent on enforcement and lost through habit funding crimes or indirectly through lost potential taxation.

But, hey, at least they've succeeded in making sure illegal drugs aren't readily available everywhere in the western world, right? Rolleyes
