PARANOIA DEPARTMENT

Not only is Memphis in May over, so is Tennessee s Click It or Ticket month. But don t start unbuckling those seat belts just yet. Though the publicity push for Governor Sundquist s initiative allowing police officers to randomly stop cars for no other reason than to peek inside and make sure that all passengers are wearing their seat belts ends June 1st, rest assured: You can still get a ticket if you don t click it. According to press materials from the governor s Highway Safety Office, The single most important role of government is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our citizens. So don t be surprised by Eat Your Vegetables or Ticket in 2002, Condom or Ticket in 03, or the controversial 401(k) or Ticket in 04.
