In the past, the Reader
staff has taken a look at drugs in lighthearted fashion
, serious overview
, or sometimes a mixture of both
. But in our most recent issue, Mick Dumke's cover story
on the effect that drugs and its concordant violence have had on the residents of west Humboldt Park provides a great deal of space for rumination and additional commentary. For this week's edition of "Variations on a Theme,"
we're approaching the world of drugs—all this week on the Bleader, look out every morning, and possibly at other points through the week, for writing on this subject.
And in case you missed it, you can take a trip to the suburbs, which is where we went for last week's "Variations on a Theme."
