I suppose we should thank this 34-year-old loser, Bobby Meserve, for colliding into a garbage truck instead of injuring or killing some innocent Five City residents. Incarceration for drugs & alcohol needs to be long enough to ensure the user/culprit wants to only get high from life, exercise, creative pursuits and learning.

He was already getting high so what are you talking about?
