Storyboard Text

  • What do you think of the new law on alcohol that's gonna be passed?
  • Oh yeah! Paula's Law? That's the one I think Senator Applegate is trying to get passed. 
  • Hmm... I don't exactly know what's going on with it. I don't think I know much about the context. Why are they all of a sudden trying to regulate alcohol?
  • Senator Applegate's daughter Paula passed away in a DWI accident. It turns out that there's some genetics involved in it; apparently, there's a gene that can influence alcoholic behavior. Both Senator Applegate and Paula supposedly have this gene, so the government is trying to control that in case there are other such people
  • Oh really? That's... wow. 
  • Yeah... Personally I don't agree with it. It could lead to potential genetic discrimination, especially in the work force. I mean, with the law in effect, it's already happening with the alcohol...
  • I agree with you on that. Besides, I'm pretty sure there's more than one gene that influences behavior. Even though there COULD be a chance of becoming an alcoholic doesn't mean it will happen. After all, it's the choices we make that affect us.
  • Yeah. And I'm sure people are going to side-step it anyway. Just like during the Prohibition in the 1920s...
  • Oh no! I just realized that my paper on the 1920's is due tomorrow and I didn't even start!
  • Oh wow... But then again, what else is new? Instead of side-stepping the law, you're side-stepping the homework!
