This is such a sad thing when drunk drivers kill. However I have to wonder why there is no more emphasis placed on the cost to society related to alcohol. We have groups screaming about tobacco use, fast foods and obesity while we continue to glamorize alcohol consumption.

Be assured that I am not suggesting prohibition. It didn't work in the past and it won't work in the future. You can not legislate morality or self-control. However, I am suggesting that as a society we could and should start deglamorizing alcohol and its effects.

Thank you

You drink, you drive, you lose. One way or another eventually. Such a horrible thing! God be with the young lady's family.

I know Eric and the girl that perished. Although innocent until proven guilty, he was a big drinker but typically walked to and from the bar. Either way, the facts as they are, this man has to live the rest of his life with this....

God bless the child and everybody's family!
