Next time try leaving the French Quarter and finding some locals to share the real jewels of New Orleans. They are more than happy to show off their amazing city, and the Quarter is definitely not where they will send you!

I like that there's a big alcohol ad at the end of the article. Societal problem, maybe?

On You Drink, They’ll Drive

@mike, et al - After my comment the author fixed it without noting the fix.

Wow, the proofreader is asleep at the wheel! The very first sentence and you can't even guess the correct your/you're to use? The state of journalism in America is abysmal.

Why in the world is this idiot allowed to ever get behind the wheel again?!?!? It is utterly moronic to not expect the same behavior from this man. What can we do to change the rules? I am so fed up of hearing stories about people killed by DUI drivers that have had multiple arrests in the past. Why don't we learn?!?


On Man Sentenced to Two Years for Hit-and-Run Spree

I will never understand why we, as a society, are so lenient and "understanding" toward drunk or impaired drivers. Driving is not a right, you can easily live life without the need to drive. You get one chance, if you screw it up, sorry, you don't get to drive any more. Simple as that.

I feel bad for the family, but it's sad that they feel the need to blame the people that genuinely were attempting to protect them. Maybe the deputy could have done something different and prevented the deaths, but to say his actions caused it is pretty mean. How do you think he feels?

On County, Sheriff’s Department Sued for Wrong-Way-Driving Death

The jurors seem to have confused "reasonable doubt" with "possible doubt." How could a reasonable person add up all the facts and conclude this man isn't guilty?

What are these "terrible race and cultural offences committed at UC campuses in the past year"? The exact phrase is used twice, but with absolutely nothing to back it up.

A Jeep jack-knifed? I thought that was only physically possible with a tractor-trailer combination, where it's unable to get out of the position without external help.

First she claims she just wants a culvert put in because it's unsafe, but then she figures she might as well have the city pay for her bills. Quit looking for a handout !

You knew it was slippery before you crossed it, you decided it was a risk you were willing to take. Take responsibility for your life instead of having your lawyer-boyfriend find an easy way out. Now you're causing our cash-strapped city to waste money defending itself from your idiocy.

When will you grow up and take responsibility for yourself? You went for a bike ride, crashed, and now you're trying to blame someone else? You knew the risks you were taking. And without any health insurance (I also wish we had universal coverage), you were surely aware of the risks you were taking. You gambled and lost, deal with it. I hope this lawsuit is another gamble you lose.
