  • Are We There Yet?

    Sounds less like “drunken parking” and more like drunken exiting to me.

  • sucks for them!

    reads like a case where the dui law does more harm than good. if the woman isnt going to make an issue of “dui” and the accident is between friends, who must already feel bad as possible, then hopefully the dui will be dropped. otherwise it ads additional insult and all kinds of financial injury to the driver, who’s in enough hot water as it is.

  • In response to the IRS, it takes a U.S. tax filer an average of thirteen hours to plan, prepare and file their federal taxes.
