Two minivans, one of them traveling the wrong way, collided on Interstate 75 in southwestern Ohio, killing four, including a 7-year-old boy.

Let's see how much coverage CNN give this tonight. That's right NONE, it was only a nutjob driving a mini van.

WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. I propose banning all vehicles with 2 or more of the following:

Stow and Go Seating
Captain's Chairs
Seating for more than 7 people
Bumper Stickers using the term "My Honor Student"
Stickers of soccer balls


THESE INSTRUMENTS OF DEATH NEED OUTLAWED!!

Was at church tonight and they had a childrens choir singing Christmas Carols. Couldn't help but think of 20 young children that would have also been singing Christmas Carols tonight. Maybe they were the Angels we have heard on high.

Pray tonight for the surviving families of these children and the families of the seven adults who died because they loved these children.

When I went to college, I became hunting buddies with one of the building maintenance staff. We spent many nice Saturdays small game hunting. He and his wife were killed coming home from church services on Christmas Eve, 1975, when a drunk crossed the center line. One year and one month earlier, an uncle was killed in a hunting accident in Wisconsin on Thanksgiving day by a hunter that had been drinking.

Drunks kill too many and there is no constitutional amendment giving the right to be drunk.

And now folks want to legalize weed, so we will have more stoners killing folks on the roads.

Two drunks live beside me, both have been in jail numerous times, lost lic. and they both still drove and drank. I wish punishment would be tougher.

Saying a minivan killed people is like saying a gun killed people. The driver of a minivan kiled those people.

Innocents Killed By Mini Van: One seldom sees that in a news story. SUVs apparently kill people on a regular basis though, according to the usual news stories on TV each night.

And the point is, that the news media commonly demonizes whatever they want to and some people are too dense to realize what they're hearing, or more importantly, why such things as SUVs and firearms can be subliminally demonized.

Like TV news crime reports with a pistol displayed in the background graphics behind the talking head, even when a firearm was not involved in the crime being reported, for example.

It has the eventual effect of making people that watch that night after night, associate a pistol with crime.
