Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Outrage of the morning

Ryan Pisco, 19, lacked a valid drivers license. After drinking too much beer at a party, he borrowed his girlfriend’s car, and was killed when he drove it into a light poll at 90 miles per hour. What was his mother’s response: sue Coors. You see, it is Coor’s fault for making beer drinking look attractive, without giving sufficient warnings. As I recall, there are warning labels on alcohol about operating motor vehicles, public service announcements about designated drivers sponsored by the alcoholic beverage industry, and frequent warnings on beer ads to "think before you drink." But I’m sure that none of that was sufficient. He couldn’t help himself. Clearly the beer companies forced him to drink and drive. Oh, and I almost forgot, she is also suing Ryan’s girlfriend and her mother, since the girlfriend had the bad judgment to loan the license-less Ryan the car. I mean no disrespect to the dead, and obviously losing a teenage child is a tragedy for a mother, but she seems to have missed at least one (maybe even two or three?) potentially culpable parties in the lawsuit.
