Letter: Real reason for the meth bust

It looks like a lot of people didn't understand their April 10 Wednesday/Thursday newspaper.

Let me explain. That entire front page was done days, if not weeks, before "The Meth Bust." Why, you ask? Simple, it's all about money. The most important part wasn't the drug bust, it was getting the front page of the newspaper. Local law enforcement needs federal money to operate, and to ask for more money, you need headlines like last Wednesday/Thursday.

It's your classic dog and pony show.

The drug bust "code named operation picture perfect" was supposed to go off on Tuesday and be in the news paper on Wednesday, but it got held up, so that's why your Thursday Daily Miner said Wednesday.

I hope this clears it up.
