COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of November 6 & 13, 2015

Stories from the week of November 6 & 13, 2015

Back in the saddle: This Tuesday I took the train to work for the first time since vacation. As I was getting off at Union Station, a woman I recognized but had never spoken to said, “ Nice to see you back at it.” ….. I am always grateful for such spontaneous comments. COP must be doing something right.

My kind of ‘back-up:’ At a meeting this week two, fairly young former federal prosecutors spoke on the futility of the drug war and the need to end it. I was impressed with their passion. They were there to change minds, not just deliver a speech. We had an excellent, 10 minute chat after the meeting.
