Well, it might be the last.

You know, drinking and driving is obviously stupid.
But lots of people do stupid things that risk their lives and other people's lives.

Hmmm... I think I can make this yellow.
Hmmm... I know I am on the freeway, but that hot chick just texted me, I gotta see it.
Hmmm,,, I'm running late for a meeting, I better email my boss while driving.

Hmmm... I can eat this sandwich while smoking this cigarette and drinking this coffee while driving.
Hmmm... what station always plays the comedy shows on Sirirus?
Hmmm....I left my sunglasses on the back seat, I can reach back there and get them while driving, no problem...

People obviously should work to minimize stupid behavior that jeopardizes their lives and the lives of others.

But this knee jerk rush to condemn...and to condemn a 20 year old....pretty ridiculous, IMO.
