Love the term "asshatism" here... I'm stealing that.

Anyways, pretty sad story. Count me as somebody who definitely got lucky when I was in college. Drove a few times I shouldn't have, no wrecks no DUIs. Like others have said, now I take cabs everywhere.

If you have a smart phone, get the Uber app for car service. They're one of my clients, and they get me there safely every single time. Reasonably priced, too.

Taking your car just isn't worth it. Too much at stake.
I do not go to the bars anymore, although I did watch football over a guys house last year drank beer and drove home.

I remember vividly the three times I drank and drove in my lifetime and they were honestly amongst the dumbest decisions I ever made. Once was after a wedding, once was after the 4th of July at a lake and the other was during the winter in Fargo after getting blasted at the bars. After losing two friends in the past several years to that, I will never do it again.

Most any college town has programs set up with their local universities and cab services to get you discount rates anywhere in the area. I know at NDSU when I was in student government, we worked with several cab services to get rates ~ 5 dollars anywhere in the F/M area -- which included West Fargo that was a few miles out of town and away from most all the bars.

For the cost of a drink, you and your friends would get home safe.

RIP to Jerry Brown, peace and love to Cowboys nation.

Wow, Brown's mother forgives him, asks him to ride in the car with her and then this comes out. Would he have lived if Brent had acted sooner?

I heard the girl saying this on The Ticket (AM 1310 in Dallas) on my way hoemm tonight. She sounded like an idiot. The guys on the Ticket were sort of saying they think she is full of crap, but I didn't hear the end of it.

Pretty crazy if it is true, but maybe he was just in a daze, wondering WTH just happened, or thought his friend was already dead at first. Why would he say he didn't want to get out of the car if he was responsive? I dunno... Sad he died tho
