Driving with the Wrong Kind of Hot Chocolate

Filed under: pre-06-2006,Schenectady Synecdoche — David Giacalone @ 7:54 pm

Last week, my municipal police force finally decided to enforce the NYS ban on hand-held cellphone use while driving; and it made national news! As Reuters/ reported on Feb. 20th, Andre Gainey was arrested for watching the porn movie “Chocolate Foam” while driving his Mercedes Benz in Schenectady, New York. This sudden incentive for law enforcement will not surprise anyone familiar with the recent history of the Schenectady Police Department, whose members seem inordinately interested in strip joints, lap dancing and similar but tawdrier pursuits (especially in their off hours).
Check out the MSNBC report for more fun details of the arrest. (Civic pride forces me to correct one error: Schenectady is a City, not a Town). Myself, I’m sipping regular-old, healthy hot cocoa, and hoping there will soon be a cellphone crackdown on the soccer moms and college students who endanger my life daily on the roads of this poor little burg.
