A holiday from the law

It's Marathon Monday in Massachusetts, with more than 25,000 people running 26.2 miles from Hopkinton, Mass., to Copley Square in Boston. Many more times that number will spectate the race. And by "spectate the race," I mean drink on the street.

There's an important key to tailgating in Massachusetts -- if you break out a beer on the street, you're liable to get shot by a pepper spray bullet from a trigger-happy peace officer.

But you're A-OK if you're using one of these.

That's right. The red solo cup is cop kryptonite. It's as though their powers of perception are rendered useless by its opacity. Of course, I only drink apple juice out of mine.
