Drinks before noon

This is pretty sad -- a young gal blowing a .36 at 11:30 in the morning in Dunthorpe.

So sad. I quit drinking 28 years ago next month. The key is not to make any assessments about it 'til you've quit for 5 years. Then, after your body gets itself worked out, it will be obvious that it was a great move.

Rich people jokes to follow in 3,2,1...

Presumably she'll have the resources to get clean and sober. Unfortunately, there are an awful lot of people out there who have no job, no home, and no help to deal with their substance abuse problems. I realize that's not really a "rich people" joke; sorry.

"Presumably she'll have the resources to get clean and sober."

AA is free. (And "higher power" means whatever you want it to.) That's a wealth of help right there.

It's implied she lives in Dunthorpe or Lake O. but does she really? Just because she was pulled over on Hwy 43 doesn't mean she resident. Even if she is, so what?

Sally is right. You can spend $40,000 to go to a fancy rehab and when you "graduate" they point you towards AA. Anyone can go to AA and they will welcome you with open arms.

It's a small miracle that nobody was injured or killed. .36 is about as close to comatose as you get in B.A.C. land.

Right. If the machine is calibrated properly, functioning well, and operated correctly. That story could easily have had a more tragic outcome:

Dead Officer's Blood-Alcohol Level at .36
