Bush pardons drug dealers

Am I the only one surprised that five of the 14 just-announced Bush pardons are drug-related offenses? Not that this changes anything structurally about the drug war, but I wouldn't necessarily have expected these offenders to be on the White House radar at all. But, good to see John Forte freed, anyway...

Yes, not even in a Tom Robbins novel could one imagine the following sentence:

"John Forte convicted on drug sentence, later pardoned by President Bush."

What a postmodern world we live in.
