That’s the only conclusion I can come to, anyway. Why else would they have a proposed rule to make alcohol retailers put up a sign stating that:

  • Drinking and driving is dangerous
  • Drinking alcohol when pregnant is dangerous
  • Drinking and driving is illegal in the District

The rules are in comment period now, so if you really have a problem with this you can send your observations to the board in the next thirty days. I imagine nobody’s going to complain – aside from the pointless cost of making these signs and retailers having a little less wall space for neon Corona signs, this isn’t the kind of government action that whips people into a froth.

I’m considering sending in an suggestion that they add “Fire hot, water wet.”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
