Nothing worse than investigating a fatal motor vehicle accident on Christmas eve,especially involving a child, believe me,can still remember telling the father at the hosp and this was in 1976...

So very true....zimmerstutzen said: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.
AgreeJohn S said:Saying a minivan killed people is like saying a gun killed people. The driver of a minivan kiled those people.
Egg zacktly!!DennyF said: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.
