kentucky's drug epidemic
"Controlling Kentucky's drug epidemic is like squeezing a balloon. The law may have a grip on one dangerous drug while a bulge in the form of another lesser-regulated drug emerges elsewhere. The drug epidemic will continue to ravage lives until the air no longer fills the balloon. In other words, deep heart and soul issues must be addressed and this is something the state is powerless to fix."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
