      Cut the horseshit, son. Who dropped a whole truckload of fizzies into the varsity swim meet? Who delivered the medical school cadavers to the alumni dinner? Every Halloween, the trees are filled with underwear. Every spring, the toilets explode. THE STUDENTS!

    Thankfully, Mr. Martinez didn’t kill anyone. All too often the outcome of this type of alleged driving results in the death of the innocent.
