In bad taste

• It seems that a Californian student will have a huge pay day ($20m) if his lawsuit for wrongful arrest is upheld. The unfortunate man was locked up for five days, without food or water and claimed that he only survived by drinking his own urine.

I recently had a bad bottle of Californian pinot noir, so I can relate to his situation on this. I would suggest to the San Diego Police Department that they now do the same as me: Always check the "cell boy" date!
