The Republican idea of drug tests for jobless benefits (Under the Dome, July 7) got me thinking. Such drug tests certainly make sense when the public good is at stake. There is no telling how drugs could affect a person’s judgment on the job, and we should expect everyone who is receiving public funds to be clear-minded when they are working. In light of all the questionable leadership coming from state government in the past six months, I think we need to start drug-testing the governor and all state senators and representatives.
