Guilty pleas start to come in from the, er, older people's prostitution ring (spread over 12 states, with13 defendants over age 50, 3 over 70). State Journal-Register (Springfield, Ill.)

Recurring Theme: This lawsuit says, if you OD on booze and drugs, and die, and you happen to be sitting in a company's car at the time, it's the company's fault that you're dead. Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, Ill.)

Recurring Theme: Arrested, DUI, on a Zamboni. Maine Today

It's been No Longer Weird for years, but it still has a je ne sais quoi about it: He wrote his robbery note on his pay stub. Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, Ill.)

older people's prostitution ring
I wonder if they offer senior citizen discounts? Do they have an early-bird special? Hell, they may even take medi-care.

In Maine it's OPERATING Under the Influence. The theory is that unlike a horse, which might go somewhere on its own and has to be driven in a particular direction, a car can't go anywhere on its own and has to be operated by a human. This, despite the fact that we are issued DRIVER'S licenses.
