    Heather Squires was the designated driver. Never exactly a fun thing, but a college buddy of her husband's was driving up from Tucson to celebrate his acceptance into law school.

Okay, they give a little credit to the maturation of baby boomers, safer vehicles, airbags and mandatory seatbelt laws. They have captured every flag they initially set out to capture. They got prison sentences for repeat DUI offenders. Flying in the face of the Constitution, they pressured the government...
