I can see a facial recognition system and BAC breathalyzer installed in every vehicle in the not so distant future.

Seems to me that the .08% BAC might be somewhat low. Are we actually drunk, and not in control after our second beer?? I know better. It would appear after reading all these "law and Order" write ups each day, that a lot of folks are being pulled over and accused of DWI when they did little or nothing wrong. Pull overs seem fabricated in some instances reported in he Batavian and other news print. Get patrols out on the road, and get the drunks off the road !! Don't sit outside McDonalds and wait for some poor citizen not to turn on their directional. Or cross the center line. The excuse most commonly used. I was actually told by a deputy sheriff that I was too close to the center line. I was going to work at 1:00 am and was pulled over for no reason what so ever. When was it illegal to be too close to the center line? He did apologize and we drove off. Stop the silliness, raise the BAC back to .10.

Hey with all the discussion about the war on drugs. As well as how its just a money grab.... I just had to share this blast from the past I think this even pre-dates the war on drugs. But hey its history and I found it while researching some stuff enjoy.

I looked up the mugshot of David Bowie taken in Rochester in 1976 when he was on a world tour. I went to see him in San Diego and it was a real let-down. He was at least an hour late, played for 45 minutes and left abruptly without doing an encore. It was one of my all-time least favorite concerts.

His concert included footage of a black and white avant garde foreign film, I believe by Luis Bunuel. In it, a nicely dressed young lady is sitting in a chair and a man casually comes up to her and without hesitation or struggle, slits one of her eyeballs open horizontally and the cytoplasm or whatever it is splurts out in a little bulge. Real close up, too. In another scene, a hole in a man's hand becomes a portal for army ants that coming crawling out of it, en masse.

I wish I had never seen that stuff. But I still like David Bowie, just not that tour.
