All personal attacks should be removed from the comments. They serve no purpose in a civilized discussion of the issues raised in Rob's op/ed piece.

Ah, for the days when the Republicans were in control. Everything was just rosy. Surely you remember, don't 'ya?

2:40 pm (not am): police contact a bloodied highly intoxicated man after falling down while walking. The outlook for this man doesn't bode well:

"Statistically speaking, the odds of living long and living well are stacked against people who use alcohol excessively. A new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report says excessive alcohol use — which includes binge drinking and drinking too much over the years — accounts for 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults ages 20-64.

Excessive drinking resulted in 88,000 deaths per year from 2006 to 2010, both from ill health suffered from drinking too much over the years contributing to breast cancer, liver disease and heart disease, to injuries, violence, alcohol poisoning, or motor vehicle accidents that occurred when drinking excessively in a short periods of time. Seventy percent of the deaths involved males, the report said."

Face it, alcohol KILLS. Yet, it's perfectly legal. Same with cigarettes.
