The new and improved breath alcohol testing program

No longer does the Texas Department of Public Safety run a breath alcohol testing program -- it now oversees the Texas Forensic Breath Alcohol Laboratory Service (Texas For Balls).

In addition, the state's breath test expert will no longer be known as the Technical Supervisor (a term that never made any sense) - but will instead now be called a "Forensic Scientist." I will admit that scientist does sound much more authoritative than supervisor.

But as nothing else has changed, it seems akin to a manufacturer touting their product as new and improved when all they did was change the packaging.

You know what they say... you can put lipstick on a moose/pig/frog but it's still dinner.
