In the middle of last week there was a press conference called to alert the citizens that a bad batch of heroin had resulted in seven deaths.
A bad batch.
As opposed to nice clean heroin.
Like clean coal, I guess.

Average age was 32.
Six men and one woman.
One of the obits noted that heroin was the cause.

Brothers, sisters, Mom, Dad, nieces and nephews.
All cast aside due to the need to get the drug into their body.
It's a scary thing.
Politicians are jumping all over it now, telling us all about how it has to stop.
We've been fighting the war on drugs since the Reagan years.
It's not going well.
A bad batch.
