*** February and March articles on charges brought against KIDS of El Paso by the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse seemed biased. I sensed an air of condemnation of the program in these articles. When the commissioner's investigator only interviewed kids who were against the program, why didn't the reporter do some investigating? Why not hear both sides? This would present a truer picture. Why, when drug abuse is running rampant, would anyone not want to support such a promising program? It would behoove the reporter, state and public to become better informed on drug abuse. The public would be well served if a dedicated reporter would do a series of articles on the efforts of such organizations as KIDS to combat drug abuse. One aspect to be explored is the reaction of children who have successfully completed, or are about to complete, this program. Let each of them tell what life under the influence of drugs is like, then let each of them tell what a drug-free life is like. Surely a little lost dignity in never being left alone, until the critical period is over, is a small price to pay for this return to human status. The parents of these kids want their children back to lead a drug-free life so they can truly live. The only other alternative is degradation followed by death. This is certain, if these kids are allowed to continue this horrendous habit.
