The news gave me, well, gas. Even before I could make a call to some former Forth Estaters, one of 'em rang me up: "Ben; I betcha heard that gas news, didn'tcha?" I replied that I hadn't because the Harvey was dominating the news, when I was awake. "Ben," He pressed, gitcha pen and ya cameras and ride. Down around Duncanville [South of Dallas} some are already charging fo'fiddy [4.50] for regular! Git down there, my many man!!"

He//, I didn't have to "Git" too far: Mere blocks from Our crib sits a, what?, filling station?, that apparently chose what octane the station owners wanted to fill in tanks....Me? Didn't need no gas; but sorely needed to go inside and the (too much info) restroom.) Came back outside and saw that some vehicle drivers were ready to go to blows or -- Mercy; I hope not! -- bangs, because of block-ins, some of whom already had their gas, but could not get out Holy Sid Miller, Batman! "Who is Cid Miller, Robin?"

"Well, my trusted Duo, off to the Bat Cave so that Alfred can boost Us All -- You, I, and The Batmobile

I hope price gougers are persecuted (and prosecuted) to the full extent of the law.

Lemme shout it out: TO THE FULLEST EXTENT.

Was so seethingly sad after seeing the goings-on among some retailers, that I couldn't think, or spell, right: The Texas Guy In Charge is Cid Miller; but as it turns out, I do not have to get busy: Social Media has done it: Even the Texas Governor's office has been inundated with personal phone-shots of not only the stations' billboard prices, but also of the stations themselves. Dammit!!

So, I'm moved to shout it out even louder: TO THE FULLEST EXTENT.

Fullest? "Full" is an absolute. Something is either full or it's not. But I'm okay with adding "-est" for emphasis.

And, Good Sir, your "emphasis" is what some major newspaper style sheets have allowed into print. Such ranks along with a judge's/and-or some juries' verdicts when they will lay on a defendant's whose crime was so loathsome that the "full" extent of the law was not sufficient. Some call it "persecution." And, in cases I've either witness or followed, , deservedly so. I recall one Journalism 'fessor calling such 'The Nth Degree.
