Great News!

It wasn't in Florida!!!

Ah, that explains Sgt. Pepper:

What would you say if I drank from the tap
Would you call the police and narc out me
Lend me a glass and I'll pour you a line
That's purer than the stuff that they sell by the key
Oh I get by with a little water from the tap
Mm, I get high with a little water from the tap
Mm, going to try with a little water from the tap


Oh, lord, I'm getting old when the part of that article that made me perk (so to speak) up is that the water "...contained significantly higher quantities of caffeine."

In Florida, the water would have toxic levels of cocaine.

Only in Miami Daisy, some parts of the state actually have "normal" people in them

Although it is hard to tell that from the news some days.

This kind of gives a new meaning to the term "High Tea" doesn't it?

I swear I haven't taken any cocaine. I just had a glass of tap water on my last trip to the UK.

Steve: Caffeine is often used as an indicator test for other contaminants. I doubt they were trying to see if people were more awake. The testing has revealed more serious problems.
