You know you've been anxiously awaiting the return of me... via vlog. And I've got it here for you. Press play to see if YOU won a free book.
And then I have to just say it because I'm kind of sick of hearing about it. So, we all know Ryan Dunn died earlier this week in a pretty horrific car accident. It's sad and when I first heard I was bummed. And then to see the wreckage photos it's like, man alive- I can't image what that would have been like in the last seconds of life. But as more details come out, I'm kind of feeling good riddance. Which is TERRIBLE to say. I know it. I have absolutely no respect for people who are going to get behind the wheel after having drinking a good part of the night and deciding to take not only their life in their hands, but everyone elses too. I have no respect for them. It's one thing that he killed himself in an act that is completely stupid and completely preventable, but the fact he's destroyed another family is reprehensible. I'm sorry, it is.
Today I see he has lots of other traffic violations including a previous DUI. Really? I know that taking a person's license away isn't going to prevent them from getting behind the wheel of a car but there has to be a better way to prevent reckless driving by drunks.
Is it really that hard to call a cab? To call a friend? Do you not know anybody who's sober that could come get you? And maybe that's a sign you should get your life together if you have no sober friends. Or if you can't afford a cab. And what gives you the right to make the decision that it's OK to put everyone else at risk for your good time? I wonder if his loss would still be mourned if he killed a family on their way home from vacation instead of another drunken friend?
