Print My Words On a Cake and I’ll Eat Them
So, Bannister wasn’t drunk? What’s interesting is that the day the original story, accusations and arrest broke, I’d heard that it was a set up, and that makes some sense. It’s too neat. The guy’s out on a business dinner with some allies, someone calls in his location, and he gets pulled over and dragged through legal mud, only to come out clean. Them’s the basics, right?
[UPDATE 10 Minutes Later: Wait, how could the BA test have come back clear if he admitted to drinking? More setups! Where’s my tinfoil hat!]
Well, good for him for being all clear. I think my original point still stands. Nonetheless, I’ll take my cake in Ikea princess form, please.

Sidenote: Why the hell does the AJC have to update the headline as they add to an article? Is this common practice in “real” journalism? As a web content creator, I learned that click-throughs are better for you than having confusing, morphing articles.
[UPDATE 11 Minutes Later: See how I did that, AJC?]
