  1. I don’t know why this is so shocking. There are a phenomenal number of drunks on the road at all hours of the day. Old people, young people, parents with kids in the car, and every other combo of drunks are behind the wheel all the time.

      I’ve never been run off the road by a drunk but I have been run onto the shoulder more than a dozen times in broad daylight by people on cell phones. And if you kill someone while being on a cell phone it is a slap on the wrist. Remember, 80 percent of traffic deaths are caused by sober drivers.

        Your sentiments are well placed Mike. We in the Socialist Village know that Alcohol related deaths and serious injuries are socially acceptable. Our DFL legislators here in the Socialist Welfare Village promote alcoholism to young impressionable children in the public stadiums by indelibly imprinting the use of the alcohol we sell there with the healthy image of sports. Alcoholism is the future of Minnesota. Get your children started on alcohol early. Give them a head start. Check out our ads in CCzero’s “Mikes Mix” column for recipes and flavorings so the children can swallow the toxic alcohol without the normal vomit reflex.
