I think we all owe Richard Newsome a debt of gratitude for finding the
information about "Go Ask Alice." How many of us have been suckered
in by this book or heard some cite it as evidence of the dangers of
drugs? Does this information not render the book highly questionable
or even a "Hoax" or a "Fraud"? Certainly Dr. Sparks' misuse of
another teenager's journal raises questions of unethical behavior.
What does everybody else think?
