Judging by the email, my post a couple of days ago “warning” about “MACED” (Mothers Against Caffeine-Enhanced Driving) was taken seriously by some. It was a spoof, folks. Social satire. Strictly tongue-in-cheek. (The news story is accurate, however: There really is a “Caffeine Awareness Council” and apparently there really are local governments eager to save us from “caffeine intoxication and dependency.”)
Me? I’m going to sit down with another cup of coffee and try to understand why so many people are constantly driven to save me from myself.
