DEEPLY SADDENED WATCH: "Gov. Jeb Bush's daughter was charged with prescription fraud today after she was arrested at a pharmacy drive-thru window while allegedly trying to buy the sedative Xanax. Jeb Bush and his wife, Columba, issued a statement saying they were "deeply saddened" by the incident involving their only daughter, 24-year-old Noelle. "This is a very serious problem," they said. "Unfortunately, substance abuse is an issue confronting many families across our nation."

From here. Did Jeba and his wife just admit their daughter has a drug problem and not even try to defend her? Maybe her prescription just ran out and she didn't feel like making an appointment to get a new one. Or maybe she actually has a drug problem. Oh yeah....

Speaking of drug problems, I'm reading Philip K. Dick's classic stoner novel A Scanner Darkly right now. It's as good as I remembered from back in junior high.
