The bus stop at Sunset and Fountain on the far eastern edge of Hollywood features the ad you see above. As I drove by it all I could think of is "Janeane Garofalo is almost that short. I wonder if she'd be a borderline case for having to drive with a booster seat?"
I really don't know why I thought that.
Of course, I also wondered exactly why the fuck the U.S. government has so much free time on its hands that it can create a whole site dedicated just to promulgating the news that anyone below 4'9" needs a booster seat. Will government inspectors begin flagging down motorists to check? Don't they have better things to do?

Hey, you know I love this website, but was that F-bomb really necessary? Actually, this whole segment is a bit of a waste. Check back in when she says something stupid again. Shouldn't have to wait that long.

Every day I find another moronic right-wing blog to look at. When I do, I marvel at how stupid it is, and I thank God that I'm not a right-wing dickweed. Today that blog is yours, and that right-wing dickweed is you.

Gee, that was enlightening. That's okay, I like to visit the Huffington Post and Newshounds and mix it up with them. I do my best to actually debate the issues instead of simply calling people d***weeds. I would do the same thing over at Indymedia or Democratic Blunderground, but they just censor the postings they disagree with, because the radical left doesn't believe in freedom of speech.

Keep on projecting there Scott.

Wow. Janine Garafolo is short. I guess that shows how incompetent she is, eh? I don't know how the feds will find time to check her height, they'll be tied up at the library checking on what books Americans read.

Um, does the BoosterSeat.gov site say anything about stopping cars and monitoring conformance? No. If research shows that injury is caused by some things (and not others), what do you want done? Isn't it a reasonable job of government to publicize that info? If not them, then who?
And, assuming you're a libertarian type, you might want to look into the history of mandatory seat belt and motorcycle helmet laws. Insurance companies were major drivers there. Seems they didn't like paying out big bucks when they could have saved a bundle of dollars (and customers). So they helped influence government, along with state police who were tired of scraping gore off the asphalt, and other do-gooder types.
