"County District Attorney Eric R. Linhardt also mentioned resurrecting DARE programs to inform the youth of the dangers of drug use."

Seriously...we (actually) have a County District Attorney that's THAT clueless about D.A.R.E., or...is he another o' those needy-folks, who simply loves the sound of his own voice, and can't WAIT to share it with others??

If there needs to be money, spent, we should (instead) spend it on something that (actually) works.
