|Sembler at Northwestern-his alma mater
On Jan 15, 2003 Straight cofounder Mel Sembler gave a speech
at his alma mater, Northwestern University, where he had this to say about
|When Betty and I saw what a social
and personal scourge illegal drugs was becoming in America, we decided
to do something about that. Thatís why we founded and directed for
many years a treatment program that rehabilitated over 12,000 young
drug abusers. Through these activities, Betty and I became friends
with the Bush family . . .
When other Straight officers are trying to distance themselves
from the holocaust, why does this man persist in bragging about his role?
If that's not salty enough, the man responsible for breaking so many young
men pulled out that poem he springs on people at such occasions:
|I often wonder what it is that brings
one man success in life and . . . failure to his brother. . . some
men succeed because they cheerfully pay the price . . .and others
are unwilling . . . Thatís why so many . . . remain on the beaten
paths that are for broken men.
