A Rajastani Jagrata

... whatever the hell a "jagrata" is!!

This purloined from Catvibe's blog...

The Price of Heroin

Why on earth this girl weighs so very little I'm not sure. Heroin alone doesn't do that... crack can, anorexia can, so can HIV so I'm pretty sure something else is going on they're not reporting here...

Heroin: American Antidrugs Campaign

THIS IS NOT what heroin does to brain and body. How can I say that? Because millions of people have been given heroin ("diamorphine") in British hospitals~ and survived without their shells broken. It's the most effective painkiller there is.

The rest of this commercial, in my opinion, is pretty much bang-on.

"There's a darker side to coke"

HERE's the TV ad featuring Pablo the "drugs dog"... made for Talk To FRANK ~ the UK National Drugs Helpline

California: High Speed Trains Coming to America At Last¬!

I found this totally at random while searching for an Escaped Horse Trots Through Cinema (while there was a film on!)... Youtube is a bizarre place to be!

Being British I can hardly opine about how countries "should" infrastruct highspeed rail rather than more and more new roads... after all OUR one and only highspeed link's the one running to FRANCE! How embarrassing is that..?!? Anyway THIS is America's one and own fast rail (bullet-train-style) project. God speed the California Express!!
