FLAG CITY — A big rig crashed into seven parked cars Monday after the driver, who was allegedly high on methamphetamine and talking on a cell phone, fell out of the cab while turning a corner.

Robert Lee Michael Jr., 39, apparently wasn't wearing his seat belt, either, though that traffic infraction is likely the least of his legal woes.

    Twenty-plus years ago, I was a meth user. I remember once mixing the drug in with my cat's food. Man, talk about crazy...that cat was bounding off the walls in my east Lodi apartment for a good two hours. When I finally let him out, he jumped one of those low-height cyclone fences in the neighborhood and attacked a pit-bull!! The next day, my cat and I stopped using meth for good.

    I hope the owner of the Dodge Durango is also cited for unlawful use of Winne The Pooh floor mats. How uncool is that?
