For some of us life has no pleasure without drinking, and life without pleasure is life not worth living. Being without drink is the same as being dead surely a few losses to bad driving has to be balanced against the many many lives lost for all practical porpuses if we cannot drink as much when we want as we want. This is America!

This certainly sounds like a presentation that would have an impact on many of the students and others who witnessed it. And it will, for sure. Good job done by the organizers.
Unfortunately, there is a segment of the population that observes these presentations who will not be moved or impacted in the least. There has to be other ways to get to these people so that the killing stops. Prevention needs to be multi-faceted.
