To Devlyn Corrigan: The regular uninsured Joe doesn't get your attention or the necessary medications from doctors like you, which is why I wrote the article. Read the article again with regard to what it said about the substances being addictive.

Bryan Pickens was mistakenly identified in Ward Harkavy's "The National Bush-Cheney Gazillions Tour" (October 22-28) as a son of oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens. That was based on a Federal Election Commission document that erroneously lists Bryan Pickens as an employee of Boone Pickens's oil company. Bryan Pickens, a Dallas entrepreneur and investor, is not related to Boone Pickens and has no connection to that company.
