At Least It Was A Hybrid …

The big media news story comes out of L.A. for a change: Al Gore III, son of Al Gore and associate publisher of Good magazine, was busted in the wee hours of July 4th while driving at about 100 m.p.h. in his Toyota Prius hybrid on a Southern California freeway:

The deputy smelled marijuana and searched the car, said sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino. The search turned up a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Adderall and Soma. There were no prescriptions found, he said.

Gore III, of course, has a history of drug busts. Will be interesting to see what effect, if any, the Paris sentence has on Gore.

Also, a marketing note: Who knew hybrids could go a 100? This could be the best celebrity endorsement for Toyota since Larry David‘s Prius on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
