Letter: Wages of sin

January 16, 2014 

Profit from vice -- I want in on that! Pimps earning money prostituting girls -- I want in on that! Cancer sticks that damage lungs -- I want in on that! Chemicals that render functional adults into nonproductive social dependents who neglect their children -- I want in on that! People who traffic sex -- I want in on that! Squandering money and wasting time -- I want in on that!

Exploitative photos of children and women -- I want in on that! Paid hit men -- I want in on that! Thank you state Rep. Gary Condotta, R-Wenatchee, for helping us better understand what kind of people and society we are going for -- "The pot is being sold, it's unregulated, it's not being taxed. We've got to capture this black market and move it into the light." Profit from vice. Got it.
