I had no idea a Prius could go 100 mph

    Maybe Fredo will commute his sentence.

    That'd be a nobel gesture, but I think the $100 fine for speeding isn't much to worry about.

    I went to a lacrosse camp in New Hampshire with him one year. He was a pretty cool kid. There were a bunch of lacrosse coaches there who wouldn't say much, but when they did talk it was clear they had no idea what they were talking about. I wonder what those guys were doing there?

    It's an inconvenient truth for Fat Albert that maybe he should spend have spent more time looking after Black Sheep Little Al than on the road talking about the environment.

    I wouldn't go that far, Jack. Some children from the most attentive parents in the world turn out to become drug addicts, criminals or just loosers. Then, some of the worst parents in the world produce the best children.

    I know my parents were pretty good, IMO, and yet I got a few speeding tickets.

    Still, I am amazed to read about a Prius going 100 mph. I wonder if there is a long downhill on that stretch of freeway.

    Jeez. Because everyone who has a kid who does something stupid is obviously a horrible parent. Did you roundly condemn Bush when Jenna was having her problems with the Austin police? How about the neighbor you inevitably have who is a great person but has a troubled kid?

    And the drugs? 25 to life?

    Maybe he had a few extra hamsters under the hood.

    Sorry, Idaho, but the point of this story is hardly the speeding ticket, but, rather, the marijuana, Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, and Adderall -- none for which he had a prescription.
