I had a high school buddy killed in a car wreck the exact same way. So yeah, I am prejudiced.<quoted text>
And exactly why the driver went to the state prison. Vehicular manslaughter, plus a DUI or DWI or whatever they charge you with being under the influence of drugs and not alcohol.
Alcohol too. I refused to fly once with a pilot who had been out drinking the night before. We just about got into a fight over it, but we didn't fly. The man thanked me later when he realized just exactly what he was about to do, which was to violate the unofficial official policy of "24 hours between bottle and throttle."
