Thousands of lives lost seems insignifigant when compared to the frailty of my ego

Via Balloon Juice, yet another overview of the waste of time and money that is the War on (some classes of people that use) Drugs. This quote in particular stood out to me:

"To say that all the things that have been done in the war on drugs haven't made any difference is ridiculous," Walters said. "It destroys everything we've done. It's saying all the people involved in law enforcment, treatment and prevention have been wasting their time. It's saying all these people's work is misguided."

Of all the asinine excuses I've heard for continuing the drug war, I'd have to say that "you will hurt our feelings" tops the cake o' stupidity.
