CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Dear Paul B,

I have read your comments about the illegal drug bust at Stevenson H.S. I can tell that you know nothing about the law, and do not understand “due process.” So why do you insist that the school had every right to take advantage of these students as though we live in a communist country? Why doesn’t the school consider class prevention and education rather than illegal and surprise drug entrapment? Are we teaching children to fear their teachers, administrators while attending school? My son wasn’t too keen on going back to school after this frightening and disturbing incident. I hope he will get over it soon.

Distraught Mom


Dear DM,

I actually had to read your letter three times to make certain that you don’t work as a comedy writer, because you could be very good at it. I don’t have to ask anyone, have MY head checked for loose screws, or have a closed ballot vote on this “insidious incident.” I don’t have to be an attorney (or a crook) to know that when you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar, you’re busted–plain and simple. I send my kids to school to learn-again—end of story. They are not at school to be a distraction, nor to treat teachers or students with dis-respect. My kids must be prepared to listen, learn, lead (if possible,) and laugh at lunch and during breaks–so you know that I am not a “dictator.” Did you see taking drugs or selling drugs in that list? I didn’t think so– DRUGS ARE ILLEGAL!!! If kids brought drugs into my house– I would call their parents and kick them out, stat! I don’t want my kids attending school with druggies or drug pushers. My kids have enough issues not to be caught selling or taking drugs. Why don’t YOU teach your kids about the hazards of drugs, or is that the school’s responsibility? If your son had nothing to hide, then he wouldn’t be all that upset, would he? I bet he was pretty darn close to being caught with “his hand in the cookie jar.” No small wonder then why he has bad vibes walking those halls–Big Brother is Watching You–Thank GOD..
