WashPo Reporter Cops To His Crack Habit

Ruben Castaneda spent some of his 20 years as a reporter covering crime in Washington DC for the Washington Post as a crack addict! Amazing! Now, 15 years crack-free, he's ready to admit it. Seriously, every line in the article (it's called "Cracked"!!!) is a pull-quote. Starting with "The old man placed the gun in the big man's right hand. The big man raised the gun and pointed it between my eyes, about two inches from my face. I thought of my parents, and my sister and brothers, in California. What would they think when they got the news?... I hoped that my editor would cover my death with a brief and let it go at that." Instead, Castaneda just got robbed and and later his editor sent him to in-patient rehab. YAY! PAID VACATION! [Washington Post]
