    "42 meth labs for a population of 9000"?

    Are these guys trying to break a record or something?

      ... how many were under the radar?

      How many had family or friends in the government or police and had "protection"?

      There has to be a low enough ratio of getting busted to successful production for people to risk making a drug lab in the first place... in other words, there are likely MANY more groups making meth in Wasilla than 42/9000. In a town like this five to ten percent of the people might be meth addicts - and they have to get their fix somewhere.

      This could be interesting if only we could set up a surveilance unit like in "The Wire" and watch it lead to the mayor's and governor's houses... hey, it's an idea for a new virtual-reality show!  (David Simon could do it as a mea culpa for the fourth year of The Wire where he didn't contribute much and it showed....)

      The Gods bless us by giving us what we need and curse us by giving us what we think we need.
