    Strange how someone can still be impaired at 7am. I know some bars were open all night but not everyone attended.

    You fools blame Robert Ghiz for drunks on the road. There were drunks on the road one hundred years ago and there will be drunks in one hundred years time. What does Ghiz have to do with it?

    I dislike Ghiz as much as the next person, but blaming this on him is a bit ridiculous don't you think? That's like blaming McDonald's because for people being fat. He made the decision to get in his vehicle and drive and didn't make arrangements for staying someplace until he sobered up. Stop blaming others for the sorry decisions we should all have the common sense to make on our own.

    If you can't afford to go out and pay for a cab ride home or you haven't made arrangements to get back home, you SHOULD NOT be going out! Guy could have killed someone.

    you know alot of people young/old enjoy going out and stuff and really you dont have much of a way home we do not have a viable bus system that runs after the bars close and out of town buses offered to us so people wouldnt have to drive.
