    I vaguely remember somebody once saying you can't hypnotize someone if they're high on drugs

    I appreciate your having my back, Scott.

    I feel I must respond since my post started some controversy. My original issue with the original poster's original post was twofold: 1) it sounded to me like an attack on Steve by an anti-fan, a type of troll the likes of which I've seen many times in recent months in the form of new members; and, 2) the post was, and remains, difficult for me to interpret; hence my question, "What was his question?".

    ...Is this Stephen King's politics and a slap at Reagan and the "War on Drugs"...
    Anytime I see a phrase such as "Stephen King's politics" included in a newcomer's first post a red flag goes up. Granted, I usually wait to respond, to see if the OP wants to get along, or even intends to stick around at all, which in many cases they do not. In this case I didn't wait. Perhaps I should have. If I've misjudged rhomnud, especially if I've caused this new member to be turned off then I apologize.

    Personally, I found Flagg's hatred of and focus on drug abuse in The Stand very interesting, just as I've found so many things that sK writes and thinks interesting. It never occurred to me to question it further than to enjoy its strangeness.

    As for the idea that my question "What was his question" is the sort of thing which is being posted routinely enough to cause SKMB membership to decline is so bizarre to me as to almost be hilarious. I do appreciate Terry B's concern, but is it true the SKMB is losing membership? I'm tempted to doubt that it is.
