Speaking of memorials

A memorial to victims of drunk drivers in New Mexico is set to become a national memorial (with the ped accompanying federal grant).

No word on when funding will be made available for a monument to remember our Constitutional rights that have been violated, stripped and made a mockery of by our nation's legislatures and courts in cracking down on drunk driving.

Now one death as the result of a drunk driver is one death too many -- but most of the motorists arrested on suspicion of DWI are stopped for minor traffic offenses. The idea that the state is entitled to strap down a motorist and draw blood as the result of a stop for speeding is a cruel joke to those who gave their lives to defend our liberty and freedom.
