April Is Alcohol Awareness Month: Maybe It Should Be March

Some St. Patrick's Day reporting cleanup:

Did you hear about the Waukesha County driver who blew a blood alcohol level of 0.34 at 10 a.m. - - after he killed two people in a head-on crash.

And fatal accidents jumped far ahead of recent St. Patrick's Day totals, perhaps because this year's celebratory binge drinking started on a Saturday.

We pay milions and billions for highways, and then we make it more permissable, more culturally acceptable, to get plastered and drive on certain days, all in the name of fun.

Makes you wonder.
