Bad ideas never die, they just drag on and on

Well, here we are a week after the Montgomery County District Attorney announced plans to post the names of those arrested on suspicion of DWI on Twitter and we have yet to see any names appear.

Despite criticism of the plan, Warren Diepraam, the idea's generator, doesn't see a problem. On the one hand he believes it will serve as a deterrent to motorists while, at the same time, he doesn't see any problems with tainting the jury pool.

Mr. Diepraam, if you don't know, also had the brilliant idea to charge a bus driver with vehicular manslaughter after a child was killed in an unfortunate accident while he was driving. Diepraam's comeuppance? A not guilty verdict.
