A Meth-Driven Life

From Holden:

Remember Ashley Smith, the Atlanta woman and darling of the Religious Right who was taken hostage by Fulton County Courthouse-shooter Brian Nichols who talked him into surrendering after reading the drivelly Purpose-Driven Life?

Turns out the oh so Christain Smith supplied escaped murderer Nichols with Crystal Meth

Nichols asked her for marijuana, she writes, but she had only a small amount of crystal methamphetamine. She thought offering him the drug might curry favor, but she says she refused to take the drug with him.

“I was not going to die tonight and stand before God, having done a bunch of ice up my nose,” she writes.
