Abide the Dude

Toking and bowling is OK, though: As the state gets ready for the first sales of legal marijuana this summer, marketing campaigns are being prepared to advise consumers on what they're buying and the consequences of breaking the rules.

Every good marketing campaign needs a spokesperson. We suggest the state hire Jeff Bridges to reprise his “Dude” role from “The Big Lebowski” to sell messages like: “The Dude doesn't abide toking and driving.”

Use your words: Police in Cincinnati are looking for a man who struck another man and triggered a melee among 20 people attending a kindergarten graduation ceremony.

If arrested, the man faces three to six months of time out, with his head down on his desk and the lights off.

Thumbs down: Thailand's military rulers have cracked down on protestors' latest attempt to rebel against the military coup: a three-finger salute from the “Hunger Games” movies. But even that gesture has been banned.

Protestors may just have to cycle through movie hand gestures to avoid arrest. Next up: Dennis Hopper's final salute from “Easy Rider.”
