  1. I’m so sick of drunk drivers, my empathy is towards innocent victims. The hell with the drunk driver. Let him think about what’s he’s done in a hospital bed.

  2. I wish all the perfect people like those who commented before me would run for office or at least offer a seminar so we all can learn how to be perfect.
