    You were getting sober about the time I had to give up weed for the military (drug tests). I wasn't a big time boozer until then...more of a stoner. Military life sort of helped fuel the descent into full-blown alcoholism. It was still a bit of a rowdy 'Boys Club' back then and you could get away with it if you were halfway smart about it. Then Tailhook happened, and the services really cracked down on the drinking and partying.

    I find it odd that so many people have driven drunk. I have never operated a car under the influence. I may have operated a tractor with an open container on private property but not drunk.

    Thankfully, this does not seem to be the case in this incident.
    In the small suburd we live in every six months ago some lil ol lady plows down people, usually plowing into hair salons. There's folks on here that would call them terrorists.

    THEIR words, I just repeated them.

    Times Square is probably the number one soft terror target in America.

    I find it odd as all hell that you are so completely clueless.

    I was in the Marines from 1968-1974. Off duty getting drunk was about the only entertainment we had available.
