Now before all of you start begging for big steaming bowls of Possumblog...

...please remember that this is Mailout Thursday (although with the midweek holiday, it's actually more like a pseudo-Monday--blech) and I have things to do. And further, I dreamed about blogging last night (in between the yahoos with their fireworks and our neighbor's big stupid dog that barked all night long) so that's probably a sign of some sort. Not sure what, but no matter.

ANYway, be patient and there'll be more in just a little while.

And as an aside, there are few things more sad than rebellious young people who get incarcerated for dabbling in recreational drugs, except for ones forced by their father's religiopolitics to play the rebel while driving a dorky Toyota Prius. I mean, even Patrick Kennedy had enough of the bad-boy about him to DUI himself around in a Mustang.

On a positive note, AG III at least was having a lesser carbon impact as he burned his fuel going 100 MPH.

Daddy must be so proud of his environmentally conscious alleged criminal.

I guess the Prius is a valid offset mechanism for all that unfiltered, untreated bong smoke going up into the atmosphere.

It's hard to decide which would be more fun to ridicule, the actual case (0-100 in how many minutes?), or if young Al had been caught in a Bentley or Jag (or even a Charger Hemi).

That's the nice thing about ridicule--the particulars really don't matter that much.

I have to admit--I did not know a Prius COULD do 100 mph. Wonder what effect that would have on the batteries, if any?

As much as I think Al is a dolt and probably really like his portrayal in South Park; Iím giving him a pass on this one.
This kid has been a problem for a long time. I seem to remember some stuff in NC back in 2000.

Stan, they'll supposedly go all the way up to 105 or so, operating on both gas and electric power. I imagine that might tail off a bit over a longer haul as the batteries heat up.

And Jim, I think you're right--I think Tipper and Al probably did the best they could. The girls turned out pretty well, after all. The young man obviously has some issues, as we pseudopsychiatrists say.

Looks like my first comment was right!
