All:

Sam Friedman has just joined the SftP discussion list.  I only know fragments of Sam's long political history, but I know him well from meetings of the Central Jersey Coalition Against Endless War in Central New Jersey of which we are both currently members.  Sam is a poet, an activist, and an epidemiologist at the International Centre For Science in Drug Policy.  His work web page is at:

Please make him welcome.
