Dialog show notes 061708

How many chances should a person get?

That was today's topic - and it revolved around the fourth DWI arrest for Marcy Cole.

My suggestion was that after being arrested four times for driving while impaired something should be done to prevent that person from endangering the lives of the rest of us. No one disagreed. Not a single caller spoke in favor of going easy.

Now, I understand that alcoholism is a disease, but if one persons disease puts someone else in jeopardy, it needs to be addressed. On that tone, I mentioned leprocy ... and did some research after the show. According to this web site, "there are still a few leper colonies around the world, in countries such as India, Vietnam, and the Philippines."

Now you know.

What do you think should happen with Marcy Cole?
