Shall we bring back Prohibtion, Mr Costas?

Jerry Brown, a linebacker on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, died early this morning in a single- car accident -- and his teammate, Josh Brent, was arrested on charges of intoxication manslaughter.

According to police, Brent (see above) was driving at a high rate of speed at around 2:20 AM when his car "hit the outside curb," flipped over and came to rest in the middle of the road.

When cops came to the scene, Brent was dragging Brown away from the vehicle ... which had come to rest upside down and was on fire. Brown was unresponsive and was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Officers at the scene suspected alcohol to be a factor, so they gave Brent was given a field sobriety test, which he failed. His blood was later drawn at the hospital to determine his blood alcohol level. Those results are not yet known.

No not prohibition of alcohol but maybe we should prohibit football; not only does it apparently cause: players to shoot girlfriends and players to in effect allegedly kill other players in drunken accidents but it seemingly causes some announcers to be as fucking dumb as rocks with lips.

Not bad, Glenn. Not bad at all.

We should also then ban the internal combustion engine, if they were forced to ride on public transportation then this would not have happened. We would also have the added benefit of making government responsible for all transportation. Doubleplusgood.

It's the roads that need to be banned! After all we didn't build them, somebody else made that happen!
