Amen Corner: DUI-ers should be thumb-lopped

Let’s face it: The penalty system in this country for drunk drivers is a goddamn joke. A fine, a suspended license and classes add up to ... ever-increasing numbers of dumbasses who drive inebriated (and victims of said dumbasses). Obviously, our system isn’t very intimidating. So we applaud at least the effort in Nevada to give it more teeth. If approved, it would require DUIers to attend “victim impact sessions”—meeting first-hand those who have lost loved ones or friends to drunk drivers. Not exactly thumb-lopping, but we’ll take it for now.
