If I had to spend any time in College Station, I would do it drunk as well.
The vast majority of traffic deaths are due to someone completly sober driving aggressivly, running a red right light, etc.. Are people any less victims? We know the drinking and driving stuff and so do the kids. Time to pay the piper. Just don't throw the drunk driver victims PC crap with minipulated statistics. How would someone feel when a cop comes to your house and says, were are sorry to inform you a loved one has died from a person driving like an asshole who was completely sober but still chose to drive like an asshole. It happens every minute here in Houston. Feel any better that the person who killed your love one chose do it soberly?
C'mon buddy, folks on THIS board don't overreact at all...
"I don't want to talk about things, I'd rather do things. We just talked, now it's time to do!"
I agree with you regarding McCoy, not Hicks. Hicks is good.
Oh, and another thing... Get over yourself...
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
So hostile and angry
No need to let the Internet get you so worked up.
How about not driving while intoxicated, with or without fake or real ID's, underage or overage, when you are of any color, wearing any color, and how about not doing it in Collie Station, or Austin, or anywhere else, whether or not you have disparaging attitudes toward the people who live where you committed such an irresponsible act? ... Oh, yeah! How about everybody else not be so sanctimonious one way or the other regarding anybody else who is stupid enough to do any combination of the above? Instead, how about calling it what it is - irresponsible and illegal behavior? (Not taking issue with your posts, VaHorn. Only using this one as a rant jumping off point.)
I agree with all of your points actually. Don't drink and drive. But you are still foolhardy if you willingly chose to be black in College Station. Kids being kids, they take a risk like that and don't give it a second thought. Fooled by the Howdy perhaps?
I have no quarrel with your point. I am a Texan through and through. East Texas, as beautiful as it is, is the South. I have spent time in College Station. Once for a couple of weeks between my Junior and Senior years in high school and another couple of months in my fifties working for the state. As friendly as the people of all persuasions or skin color were, I could not wait to get out of there on both occasions. Though. I must say, neither occasions were as bad as simply driving through Alabama in the 70's late at night with three of us being of the pale persuasion and one being black, and together, the four of us daring to stop at a truck stop for a bite to eat. I have some definite opinions about prejudice as it has been exhibited on travels across this country and a few other countries through the years. My point is only to differentiate between, and not to confuse, the responsibility of an individual to society in general, regardless of their skin color, and the confusion of that same person somehow being prejudiced against, ostensibly because they are a minority, even though they were in the wrong to begin with, regardless of their minority status or skin color.
