    CHASING THE SCREAM-Johann Hari

    in Entertainment

    It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned in the United States. On the eve of this centenary, journalist Johann Hari set off on an epic three-year, thirty-thousand-mile journey into the war on drugs. What he found is that more and more people all over the world have begun to recognize three startling truths: Drugs are not what we think they are. Addiction is not what we think it is. And the drug war has very different motives to the ones we have seen on our TV screens for so long.


    In Chasing the Scream, Hari reveals his discoveries entirely through the stories of people across the world whose lives have been transformed by this war. They range from a transsexual crack dealer in Brooklyn searching for her mother, to a teenage hit-man in Mexico searching for a way out. It begins with Hari’s discovery that at the birth of the drug war, Billie Holiday was stalked and killed by the man who launched this crusade—and it ends with the story of a brave doctor who has led his country to decriminalize every drug, from cannabis to crack, with remarkable results.


    Chasing the Scream lays bare what we really have been chasing in our century of drug war—in our hunger for drugs, and in our attempt to destroy them. This book will challenge and change how you think about one of the most controversial—and consequential—questions of our time. CHASING THE SCREAM-The First And Last Days Of The War On Drugs-Johann Hari

    Will Adam Silver Take a Stand on Changing Playoffs?

    in Basketball

    Adam Silver has been commissioner of the NBA for 14 months now. He has been forceful on one issue -- the lifetime suspension of Donald Sterling, which led to the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to billionaire Steve Ballmer.


    It is time for Silver to stand a stand again, and this time it has to do with reformatting the playoffs.


    I wrote an open letter to Silver about this very issue less than a month ago, and it is certain to come up at the NBA Board of Governors meeting in New York next week. My suggestion: Take the six division winners, seed then 1 through 6, and then take the remaining teams with the 10 best records and bracket them so that 1 plays 16, 2 plays 15, and so on.


    That was one of the topics I discussed today on the Eric Hasseltine Show on ESPN Radio in Memphis, along with plenty of talk about the flatlining Grizzlies, the surging Spurs and a few other NBA topics. Enjoy.
