Brickbat: Open Wide

In Reading,
Pennsylvania, a private company with the help of local police
pulled over motorists to ask questions about their driving habits
and request they allow them to swab
the inside of their mouths
. Officials say the company was hired
by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the White
House Office of National Drug Control Policy. They also claim the
checkpoints were voluntary. But one motorist says he was detained
five minutes and had to repeatedly refuse to answer questions
before he was allowed to leave.
