Wed. April 17, 2019 – didn’t sleep well

71F? and damp. Maybe. I gotta figure out what is going on with my weather station. How am I going to pretend I’m in control when I don’t even know how hot it is?

I can’t control the puns though, and can’t resist one of my own. The DWI presentation was sobering.

It’s also the only crime where you are actually going to be tried in court by a ‘jury of your peers.’ Practically every adult in the US has made a poor decision and driven when they shouldn’t. Subsequently, people get off that objectively shouldn’t.

This is an especially big problem in TX and in Houston, and I’m mentioning it here because it’s very much a “don’t be there” dangerous situation. You can decrease your chances of injury or death by simply “not being there”. Don’t do it. On the flip side, as the officer pointed out, DUI/DWI deaths happen at all hours of the day or night, but some times are worse than others. Avoid those times, avoid those places.

Over one half week in the last month, with 4 major events in town at the same time, there were about 300 DWI crashes with 19 fatalities JUST IN HOUSTON. Those are entirely preventable deaths.

Busy day, in and out all day, although if it rains, who knows….
