Don't Confuse Fact With Opinion

Editor:

Bob O'Brien may be right in his claim about the failure of DUI law enforcement to make any "appreciable statistical difference" in the situation -- but I challenge him to produce verifiable statistics (not opinions, however learned they may be) which support his claim, his "fact".

Citing "statistics" without revealing their precise definition, their source and the conditions of their development is the worst kind of "dirty pool." It often may be just downright silly, but may also be, as in this case, dangerous.

What is more, owing to the potential of an improperly operated automobile for injury to the lives and property of others, I do not consider my personal vehicle, while in motion or improperly parked, as an extension of my home, my castle, which shall not be violated by the King's men.
