    I don’t buy it.

  • Are there any numbers published for drunk driving arrests made on Saturday after the parade?

I told the first cop I saw at the bottom of the hill and he wrote it down on his hand. At least he took me somewhat seriously, but I would have liked to see a check point on Broadway/Embarcadero (even though I think they don’t do much, it is something).
