New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 13, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Dear Abby 8    Herald-Zeitung, New Braunfels, Texas Bloom County Tuesday, January 13,1987 Keeping Drunks From Driving Is Everyone’s Responsibility ivs Nor WH arnee You //(Kl cie u?sg its blow iou play thie <2>A/de " if r wim AN/THihkbAr Au-, IU- /r tweie THfcOArs! DEAR ABBY: No! No! No! Although I’ve been a strong supporter of yours for many years, I’ve never written to you before. Now I feel compelled to because I’m so angry and ashamed of you! I’m referring to your reply to “People Against Drunks.” Shame on you for joining the guilty-until-proven-innocent mob and jumping on the anti-drunk drivers’ bandwagon. I think the allegedly drunken man did extremely well to keep his composure for IO minutes before resorting to physical tactics to retrieve his car keys from that neighbor who judged him as too drunk to drive. Answer me this: If this man was (as his neighbor described him) so drunk he could hardly walk, how could he have overpowered the guy to get his keys back? I’ve never committed a violent act in my life, but if some self-righteous busybody confiscated my car keys because he decided that I was too drunk to drive, I’d be tempted to dynamite his house! Maybe in communist Russia this could happen, hut here in America, a person is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. DON IN EUGENE, ORE. DEAR DON: Are you serious? Drunks who can hardly walk have been known to commit mayhem with their bare hands. And what do you mean, a person is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty? Getting drunk is not a crime, but driving drunk is! Must we presume a person to be “innocent** until he has killed someone because he was guilty of driving drunk? I stand by my advice: It's your business, my business, and the business of every person to do whatever is necessary to prevent a drunk from driving. Please, read on: DEAR ABBY: How I wish someone would have taken my car keys away from me last Feb. 18, when I was drunk but got into my car, crossed over into the other lane and hit another car head-on, killing a young woman instantly. She left a Lunch Menus husband and two small boys. I’m now in prison in Lincoln, Neb., serving 20 months to five years — a cheap price to pay for taking someone’s life. Abby, please tell people who let drunks drive, that they are as much to blame as the driver if he kills someone. And they should ask themselves how they would feel if their child or wife or husband was killed by a drunk driver. Although I will be a free man one day, I will never be free of the guilt I will carry for the rest of my life. NO. 37405 DEAR ABBY: I am writing in response to “People Against Drunks.” In 1982, a 17-year-old girl was killed by a drunk driver on the night of her high school baccalaure ate ceremony. This girl believed in and worshiped God with all her heart. She was a good friend and a caring stranger, but her life was cut tragically short because someone let a man drink and drive. I live in a small town called Crossword Marion, Va., and we decided to take some action against drunk drivers, so our police department developed a system last year that has cut the number of drunk driving fatalities in half! It’s called R.A.I.D., which stunds for “Report All Intoxicated Drivers.” There’s a phone number that anyone in or around Marion can call to report a possible drunk driver. The callers need not give their names unless they want to; they just have to describe the vehicle, the license number and the approximate location. The police will then check out the report. I think this system is what every town needs. CONCERNED TEEN AGER IN MARION, VA. DEAR CONCERNED: Three cheers for Marion! I hope other cities will adopt the idea. And fear not that it will encourage friends to snitch on friends. Friends don't let friends drive drunk. Sunday's New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung carried the next week's lunch menus for Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School. Below is the menu for the rest of this week. Sts. Peter and Paul Tuesday — Pried chicken, mashed potaoes wih gravy, com, hot rolls with butter ad hone, strawberry Jell—O with topping.
