Do I have this right? A church burned down all the Christ in the middle, so a new law was passed that one can drink and drive? Those wild and crazy Irish!

What do you get out of the headline:

In Texas you used to be able to drive and drink a beer. Drinking and driving isn't the problem. Drunk driving is the problem. The woman who founded MADD Mothers against drunk driving got a ticket for DWI :)

When attempting to pick a humorous name to post with, it is very important that you don't burn yourself in the process, i.e. "Jose Queervo" or "Zero Dark Nerdy". This completes the object lesson for the day.

Any questions, blockhead?

In Ohio that is what we call Buzz driving and has the same penalty as drunk driving..:)

Most states use to not enforce drunk driving or driving after you had a few. I've done it many times. But we are more informed now than we were then about all the deaths and destruction caused by our reckless behavior..

Times have changed..

Was obliged to go to 'drivers' school' recently.
Some of the shit I learned about the physics of alcohol, and its affect on driving awareness, reflexes, and judgement was astounding.
eg: On Saturday night you have from friends over: Party breaks up at 1100pm, and you immediately go to bed, totally shitfaced.
The next morning at 900am, you're driving to IHOP, and get stopped by a cop on a failure to yield deal.
He smells a bit of alcohol on you, tests you, and you're popped for a dui.
Turns out, 8 hours after your last beer, your blood alcohol is still over the limit.

So, what you're really meaning to say is, they'll get that pina colada from you when they pry it from your cold, dead hands?

He has that effect on the clinically brain dead, it would seem. The rest of us he just kills with boredom, and that's not a good thing.
