Obviously, a Punishment-Based System Isn’t Working

by jhwygirl

No drunk like this one – and Montana has far too many of these kind – is stopped from getting behind the wheel because of the threat of a fine or jail time.

Montana isn’t going to find an instant solution to this. It’s gonna take years. We need to change the culture of drinking here – we need to start working with middle school and high school children.

We need laws that are actually enforced, too. A 20-year old UM student killed early Tuesday morning when she fell while climbing the fire escapes, trying to reach the roof between two downtown bars – the Rhinoceros and the Missoula Club? Wonder where she was drinking.

Education is cheap. It can change the world.

  1. “Education is cheap. It can change the world.”

    Yes, it is cheap. A good place to start would be to walk over to the dictionary, and open it to the page with “presumptuous.”
