    Sorry for your loss. I was rearended at a stop light on Friday in PA. No damage just tapped me enough that I fell over. I had been watching my mirrors and thought the guy behind had stopped so looked away. He decided to pull up more even though I was behind an 18-wheeler so we weren't going anywhere fast when the light changed. Old guy, I think he just didn't have a clue where the front of his truck was. He really wasn't coping well with the situation--I thought he might start crying. Probably the kids had been trying to convince him to stop driving and he was just beginning to realize that they might be right.

    I do. 10 to 15 years in prison will get people talking. I also think that the first drunk driving conviction should be a month in jail, with a year for the second or the first if there were injuries. the drunks would keep drinking, but they'd taxi home.
