I must have looked shocked. Ehrlichman just shrugged. Then he looked at his watch, handed me a signed copy of his steamy spy novel, The Company, and led me to the door.
I was working in a remote region with a korean war vet - the marine was as much of a libertarian as you could find. The man had the constitution nearly memorized. When our camp was on a break and the discussion came up concerning drugs, he said to legalize it all and 'if you want to ruin your life with drugs, that is your life, not mine.'
The guy was in his mid 80s.... a little off kilter but damn, he had a life that would lead anyone to respect his opinion.
