Michael Phelps and Kellogg's

I can’t quite grasp the whole idea that people seem to have about the evil weed, marijuana. I think it’s pretty much established it’s less destructive than alcohol, and I suspect, truth be told, there are few middle-aged adults today who haven’t partaken.

Now I see you all are supporting this over-reaction by withdrawing your sponsorship of Michael Phelps. The guy may be the greatest athlete ever, and not just in terms of physical accomplishments. He comes across as a gentleman and true sportsman. He certainly made a mistake, but he also represented America brilliantly both in and out of the pool at last year’s Olympics.

So what if he took a draw off a bong. After his performance in these past Olympics, he deserved it.

So let’s see, the current President admits to having smoked it, Bill Clinton admitted to (not inhaling notwithstanding), Al Gore, former VP and Nobel Prize Winner, and for the previous eight years, our country was run by a crack-head.

I’ve written Kellogg’s and expressed my dismay that they have joined the reefer madness hysteria, and I would invite you to do the same.

I’m sorry you all have joined the completely over the top hysteria that is being promulgated by a publicity seeking back country South Carolina Sheriff (and I come from North Carolina, so I know whereof I speak) who bought his department a tank with a 50 caliber belt fed machine gun.

I just threw out my box of Frosted Flakes, and there will be no more Kellogg’s products in my home until you reinstate your sponsorship of Mr. Phelps.

These people need to get over themselves.
