Lindsay Lohan could use the metro

Little Lindsay Lohan was popped for drunk driving in Santa Monica early this morning. The story, as TMZ tells it, is that her assistant quit, the assistant's mom came to pick her up (her mom? for reals?), and Lindsay jumped into her Denali SUV to give the two chase. Momma called the cops. Flash forward: Lindsay is arrested for drunk driving and she's got coke in her pocket.

Lesson learned: driving after your just-quit assistant and her disgruntled mother is not a good idea.

And this tragedy could have been prevented if only Lindsay had been riding the metro. It's ok to be stumbling drunk on the metro. It's ok to race into a subway station after your ex-assistant. It's even ok (if annoying) to get into a loud argument while riding the metro.

So Lindsay, give up the 13-miles-per-gallon SUV and start taking public transportation. It's for your own good.
