I almost anticipated some snarky anti-Palin article, but No, it’s just bad spelling.

Huh? A “heroine” is a female hero. “Heroin” is a opiate. I figured the article was just a clever play on words and would be about Palin fans, but it’s about drug addiction.

Sometimes, spell-check can be your worst enemy! LOL.

Similarly I kept waiting for a play on words which never came.

I find it difficult to take seriously someone who can’t spell, and doesn’t know the difference between heroin and heroine, but who nevertheless feels qualified to write about it and post their opinings on the Internet.

Methadone as heroin substitute is of debatable value. They put my brother on it after his addiction to oxycontin ruined his life. That happened after a laminectomy.

The methadone kept him off the oxycontin, but methadone is dangerous when mixed with non opiate pain killers, which he still had to take because of his back. Methadone is particularly dangerous when mixed with benzodiazepines such as the commonly prescribed Xanax, which my brother was taking. The interaction killed him.

oh come on now. . .

a misspelled word and you really don’t get the wonder of the post’s message?

sad, isn’t it?

(ah-hem. or is it mispelled or misspelled. gosh. tough sledding when writing for the internet—that is, for some).

with any drug intake, one must be very careful.

that’s the bottom line, naturally.

sorry to read about what happened in your brother’s life. very sad.
