Thank you again, Granpa' Uriah

My great, great, great, great (or it may only be 3 greats, I forget) Grandfather Uriah GunTrash, that is. He was sentenced at the Old Bailey in 1762 to be expelled to the colonies for stealing a cow. If he hadn't been a crook I just might today be a citizen of England and subject to this kind of nanny state Bravo Sierra.

Stupid, absolutely stupid.

Expelled to the colonies eh. Stroke of good luck for the family I would say, but that sort of nonsense goes on in this country too. Unfortunately.

Yeah, the MADD bunch started it. Darned busybodies!
