NAMES IN THE NEWS: Or rather the lack of names. I read an online news paper on a regular basis, and one of the items listed almost weekly are the local police blotters. Of all the things that are on the blotter is the number of times the officers are called and the result is that someone, or several someone's, have been drinking.
Or they are called to a bar or a club where drinking is going on and a fight broke out, often between family members. Sometimes to the extent of an injury being inflicted. Occasionally a fatal injury.
Yet, still they drink, and fight and just don't seem to understand the correlation between the two.
Yes, I agree, not all problems are the result of drugs and alcohol, but so often it is and one just has to wonder why they don't understand this and just stay away from those influences.
OH Well, THAT'S THE VIEW FROM THE DITCH BANK
