If 43,000 pounds of Dos Equis beer spills on highway is anyone sad?

July 15, 2008

A truck carrying 43,000 pounds of beer blew a tire, overturned and caught fire shortly before noon Monday on eastbound I-20 in DeKalb County.

According to DeKalb County Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Eric Jackson, dozens of full and unopened Dos Equis beer kegs inside the truck did not spill during the accident — to the dismay of hundreds who were forced to wait in the hot midday sun until blocked lanes were cleared about 1:45 p.m.

Nobody was hurt in the wreck, which blocked two of the center lanes of the interstate just east of Panola Road.

UK Local Goverment Association head-Stop spying for trivial offenses. Sir Simon Milton-No.

There has been growing anger about the methods used by councils to probe minor crimes, such as dog fouling.

The powers were introduced under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act as part of the Government’s anti-terror drive but it is claimed some councils are abusing the powers.

This really shouldn’t be shocking. The government pushes intrusive legislation under the guise of society’s protection and people comply. And your freedoms get chipped away little by little…..

It’s for your safety. Does anyone actually still believe that?
