I Will Forgive

Let me briefly pause from writing about my Vietnam trip to speak about the arrest of Steely McBeam on drunk-driving charges. Well, not the infernal foam-rubber suit itself, but one of the actors who gave that ghastly puppet life. While I don’t condone driving with a BAC of .166, you can understand why portraying Steely (deleted) McBeam might drive you to drink. And then, drive.

Steelers spokesman David Lockett said the young man in question has been "released of his duties". For a moment there was a glimmer of hope…until the I read the next sentence, which said "Steely McBeam will still be part of the Steelers".

"We haven’t had any discussion at all about changing that," (Lockett) said. "He’s still going to be out there in the community uninterrupted."

They’re still gonna inflict Steely McBeam on us, and the whole city is at risk. Couldn’t someone perform a citizen’s arrest against Lockett for making terroristic threats?
