Grand jury: Marin 'sobering center' would be more humane for public inebriates and would save money

Feb 28, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Marin Independent Journal

Only when its between two pieces of whole wheat bread accompanied by a coupla slices of Black Forest ham slathered with Miracle Whip and a big dill pickle on the side.

I oughta know I've made more than one for you and went down to the transit stand holding up my Commander Bunny bumper sticker hoping to flag you down but Noooooooo, no sign of a rat cab driver who limps on his left hind paw.(Who shot my paw) Everyone just sorta went past me pretending not to see the crazy doctor who was looking for a rat cab driver with a limp.

I don't know about you but I could use a good long rest in a nice sobering center. They wait on you hand and limp foot. Bring you sandwiches and pickles and stufff like that.

You must have missed that one post of mine. Where I said I haven't been driving my cab lately. The reason being that some of my customers thought it was pretty amusing to tickle my ears,

<<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<<

just barely, with a feather. While I was driving.

And that was really starting to interfere with my driving.
