Dick Lee clarifies comment on drugs

My comment ("Everybody in my school did") in Monday's report on my forthcoming movie was made as a figure of speech, and not meant literally ("Dick Lee to keep it real in biopic"). 

My apologies to all Josephians if it was misunderstood, although my school experience in the early 70s did include exposure to drugs.

Of course, the situation is completely different today, and St Joseph's Institution remains a respectable and reputable centre of learning.
