Just be careful man, that's all I'm saying.

That sounds awesome. I can imagine quite a light show during "Evacuate."

On the drunk driving front, no one necessarily condones it, but Laz has a point. Sometimes it just happens.

It should be taken on a case to case basis, as a .08 BAC doesn't necessarily affect everyone the same way.

For people with means, it's always avoidable. He's not living on or near a college campus.

Of course it's avoidable. But I absolutely hate taxis. I will NOT take them (save for one instance in New York City last year, and I was with people who insisted). Biggest waste of money I can think of. I've taken an hour to walk home in the middle of the night to avoid them.

The other thing is that I rarely drink to the point where I'm fucked up anymore. I have a couple drinks and just coast. If I'm at a party that's another story, but it's usually a house I've walked to.

I hear you.

I'm gonna drop it, just, like I said, a sore subject with me.

I hear you. There are a lot of people who have connections to it, so it's certainly nothing I'm cavalier about.

Oh hell, it's always avoidable for everyone. No one has to drink. Those who drive drunk/impaired choose to do so. Always.

the joshua tree is an amazing flying album. i played it when i flew from phoenix to memphis earlier this year. i still haven't found what i'm looking for came on just as we flew past a city with lights that looked crucifix shaped. it's lucky i don't believe in signs or anything like that or i'd have been hunting for a parachute.

I was reading an article about the world's best airports today and thought of you. Some of those airports are awesome. DFW was the best from the States, it was #13 in the world or maybe a tad lower.

I flew through DFW last year and was totally unimpressed on the way to San Antonio, but then on the way back I realized I'd been in another terminal or something on the trip there, because on the trip back I was in the main terminal, and it was pretty great, as far as airports go.

DFW has five terminals. And they're all separate. When I still lived there, I was a bellman/driver at a hotel with the main driving duty of taking guests to and from the airport. Obviously, I got pretty well acquainted with the thing. It's a damn fine aeropuerto.


If you were less than impressed with DFW, you must have wanted to kill yourself in San Antonio. No reason to go there other than watching the Mavs kick the shit out of the Spurs.
