JOSEPH N. BELL One of the more significant contributions of my generation to the Midwestern culture, in which I was raised, was the domestic cocktail hour. It took root in Indiana and Illinois, where I lived after World War II, then was exported wherever we moved, causing some resistance in other American cultures less advanced -- like that of my wife, who was raised in Southern California and had no grasp of the blessings of the cocktail hour in the early years of our marriage.

A jury found an Irvine woman guilty Wednesday morning in connection with a 2006 accident that killed a Costa Mesa teacher. Janene Johns, 53, was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter after hitting Candace Tift Aug. 23, 2006 with her Lexus as Tift was riding her bike. Prosecutors said Johns was on a cocktail of prescription drugs Xanax, Ambien sleeping pills and cough medicine when the accident happened. Johns' defense tried to argue that she was so grief-stricken by the death of her husband weeks before the accident that she was in an unconscious state when the accident happened, meaning she was not liable.
