If she drinks all the alcohol, then nobody else can have any. Would you rather have one really drunk person driving or a whole lot of people driving drunk?

What a shock. A public "do gooder" and clucking hen of disapproval does exactly what they are "against"

Wouldn't it be great if all these "more moral than though" types could simply face their demons on their own nickel instead of trying to drag the law and all of us in to it?

It's called alcohol tolerance.   You can kill a 21 year old on his birthday with .20 BAC, you can get some alchoholics with quite high numbers.   When I was working in an ER I had a patient once whose test came back .42% BAC.    He was still pretty lucid and talking.  He'd been stabbed (which is why he was in the ER) and a bit high strung as a result.

A friend of mine had an uncle who was on crack. They got his brother to go over and do a one-on-one intervention. Once the brother gave all his reasons for the uncle to seek treatment, the uncle had one question:

You say it's bad, but have you ever tried it?

And they both been smoking crack ever since.

I guess this lady decided if you can't beat 'em, join em.

The older I get the more I realize the anti-whatever crusaders almost always have one of two skeletons in their closets.  Either they did/do whatever they say they're against, or someone molested them, resulting in an overly high-strung view of the world.

As a result I found myself abiding by my own theory and really moderating, since I was never that much of a trouble-maker or molested.

Pud: Do as I say, ...not as I do.

The closeted homosexuals campaign against gay marriage.
The closeted alcoholic campaign for prohibition
The closeted addictive personalities rail against marijuana legalization.

God it just gets so OLD.

It all begins and ends with Hawthorne.

Whatever behavior an individual rails against, preaches against, wails against, they are doing or they want to do.

I was kind of hoping "five times over the legal limit" meant she was going 325mph, but this is impressive in its own way.
