I have ZERO tolerance for people who drink and drive! NO EXCUSES!!!! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 2, 2011 TV Gord, Thanks for the support. Log in to Reply TV Gord May 2, 2011 Right on, alstonboy! I am also unwaivering on that, regardless of whether I like the person or not. If you drive impaired, you could kill someone! Too many people excuse that. Someone close to you shouldn’t need to die before we ALL wake up to the fact that driving under the influence is ATTEMPED MURDER!!!

Driving is not a right, it’s a privelege. If you can’t act like you’ve got some sense, then you don’t need to have a license. Log in to Reply JAQ May 3, 2011 I agree with all your comments! Driving IS a priviledge!! So what if he miss’s Bobbie!! :* He can still call a friend or cab! Log in to Reply Renegade_Killerbee May 3, 2011 Thank God you guys have some sense! I was completely slammed on some other soap opera message boards when I gave a thumbs down to Colleen Zenk and Kristoff St. John’s DUI charges some time back. Listen, I love to drink as much as the next guy (that loves to drink) and I have gotten wasted beyond belief in the 15 years I’ve been drinking. But not once in any of those drunken states did I ever even ponder the idea of grabbing my car keys and getting into my car. Perhaps because, in the back of my mind, I always knew it would more than likely result in not only my death, but the death of some innocent person( s ). Why don’t these privileged celebrities REALIZE this, too? Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
