Update: This is bit old now, but Gregory Kane had a great editorial on Dixon's crime plan, and how it was absent even a mention of treating drug addiction or decriminalizing drugs and treating them as a public health crisis. Why?
Decriminalizing drugs and treating addiction as a health problem were notably absent from Dixon's list of proposals. I can't blame her. Suggesting bold, risky and innovative proposals is no way to get elected mayor.
Will any viable Democrat dare utter the "D" word? I share in Kane's doubts, but I value his normally conservative voice advocating a radical change in perspective.
