Put the finishing touches on your work and finish up that meeting. I know it's only Wednesday, but tonight's the Drink & Blow. Our subjects have already started drinking. Come check out the show.
Cornerstone of Southern California will be giving away some great prizes in support of a great cause -- The Orange County Fallen Firefighters' Fund. Cornerstone is giving away two sets of tickets to a "Badge vs. Firefighters Grappling Duel" August 6th, which include food, drinks, and a "grappling/wrestling" match between Orange County Fire Team and Orange County Deputy Sheriff's Team. Really? Grappling? I would pay to see someone wringing their hands and looking like I feel most of the time.
SEAL Team Sexy.
Come support our brave subjects and let them entertain [and educate] you:
- Dep. District Attorney ANDY BUGMAN
- Dep. Public Defender ROB FLORY
- NOCBA VP BOB HICKEY
- Courtroom Clerk FELICIA BICKNELL
- OCSD Courtroom Deputy GERRY LOWE
Geronimo? Or Geronimost.
Fullerton Police Officers are -- as we speak-- "dosing" our subjects to take them to new heights of BAC to demonstrate the effects of alcohol on impairment and learn a good bit about what FSTs do and don't reveal about alcohol impairment to mental and physical functioning. This is equally valuable to the trial lawyer, bench officer, and lay person.
The Hangover they're sure to have.
Feel free to lend a brother a hand if you see one of our subjects in court tomorrow. Wait. BOB?!? Bob, if you read this before court tomorrow: Don't. Speak.
The meaning of "is. . . too drunk to drive."
The event was formed to educate those in the legal community on the unpredictability of alcohol's affect on driving. Blood alcohol levels are often claimed to be inaccurate measures of a person's ability to drive. And many states allow the challenging of BAC results in court. The California Supreme Court's recent decisions concerning challenges to breath tests make this demonstration all the more relevant. Gender, weight and food intake are just a few factors influencing BAC. Some individuals may not be visibly impaired and still be unable to perform critical functions. Others, like me. may display symptoms of mental impairment despite total sobriety. Whether you're a trial lawyer or just a person who uses the highways, the wet lab will give you valuable insights.
See you in a couple hours!
