  1. THIS STORY HAS NOW REACHED THE U.S… MANY OF US UP HERE DON’T WANT TO COME FOR A LITTLE VISIT BECAUSE OF THE ALCOHOL LEADING TO VIOLENCE PHENOMENON THAT YOU HAVE AND SEEM TO CONDONE. LAST TIME I WAS VISITING AN INNOCENT OLD MAN HAD JUST BEEN KILLED BY A COUPLE OF DRUNK GUYS WHILE JUST WALKING DOWN THE STREET. IS THAT NORMAL? MAYBE YOU COULD LET THEM TRY MARIJUANA AS AN ALTERNATIVE WHICH SEEMS TO MAKE PEOPLE BEHAVE IN A MORE FRIENDLY MANNER.
