Get dirty meth secret into open

The short answer to The Union headline, “Meth out of control?” is a very clear “Yes!” Or as my kids would say, “Duh.”

Western Nevada County is the best place in the world to live, but the dirty little secret of our county is that we have an enormous drug problem that is killing us. Ackerman brings up some good ideas in his Dave Barry-esque [column], and I agree that the time is way overdue to fight back against this horrible drug and the havoc it wreaks in our community.

While the Meltdown is a worthy cause and a brilliant idea, the Methdown is a necessary cause. Let’s get this dirty secret out in the open and fix it.
