When you need a driver, ask the 12-year-old

When a woman wanted to go to a bar to drink recently in Longview, Texas, she had someone else drive her. Perhaps this was the responsible thing to do if she had already had been drinking.

Except that the person she chose to drive her to the bar was her 12-year-old daughter. After you check out the story, look at one of the reader comments below it:
"Sadly, this is what our harsh DUI laws have pushed many drinkers to."
Uh ... what? Blaming the DUI laws for having a 12-year-old daughter drive her mom to a bar. Come on, people.
