Why Rush won't be going to jail - I found this in the Chicago Reader, which referenced Illinois Justice Authority;

It's not a war against drugs. It's a war against blacks; That's the obvious conclusionto be drawn from the front page article in the summer issue of the Compiler, journal of the Illinois Criminal Justice Authority. According to data from various state and government agencies, black people make up 28% of drug users, 70% of those arrested for drug use, and 86% of those imprisoned.

How ironic, considering the fact the last widely publicized statement Rush said before saying "I am a drug addict" and entering rehab was that Donovan McNabb overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed.
