  1. Completely outrageous that someone who has been arrested THREE times for driving drunk would be operating a vehicle. All studies show that people who drive drunk once almost always do it again and do it repeatedly. Driving drunk is one of the most uncaring, irresponsible things a person can do.

    My heart goes out to the victims. Such a sad, senseless tragedy.

  3. If this had been a black celebration or an St Patrick's Day parade this story would have made the mainstream news but, because it was gay people and the US media is owned by the Republicans the story was not reported.
