Remember your manners

We live in a society, people. Take the war on drugs for instance. There was a time when respectable company could expect that certain courtesies would be repaid with courtesy. But that time, along with so much of propriety, has been abandoned in a seedy retirement home.

Me, I’m the Frontline cameraman exposing the corruption that lurks deep within these old-person-smell filled, plastic-medication-cup strewn halls. And that corruption is as vile and as ugly as the residents, the victims of this crime, once weren’t.

Ironic, then, that it’s all Nancy Reagan’s fault. Don’t play coy — you know what I’m talking about. It’s about time somebody confronted her invidious slogan — about time somebody sought to return civility to civilization. The next time someone generously offers you some of his hard-acquired illicit substance, don’t “just say no”; say “No, thank you.”
