At the Top of His List of Things To Do

And the report is in from the police on the death of Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock. He was drunk, with a blood alcohol content of about twice the legal limit. He had marijuana and a pipe in the car, although they haven't yet done the blood work to determine whether he'd been using that as well. He was talking on his cell phone. And he wasn't wearing his seat belt.

In one of my favorite quotes from M*A*S*H, Colonel Potter goes off on the staff for "putting be stupid at the top of your list of things to do today". Apparently, it was at the top of Hancock's list that night.
