Liquid Courage to Face that Two-Edged Sword

It does pierce as far as the division between soul and spirit, and it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. So I can understand why one would need a little fortification before facing it.
A Fremont woman was driving drunk to a Sunday morning Bible study class when she failed to negotiate a Dunkin' Donuts drive-through and crashed into a fence, say police.

As a result, Mary Lou Kohlhofer, 53, of 848 Main St., was arrested on a charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated.

Arresting officer Rochelle Jones said the aggravated charge was levied because after Kohlhofer displayed signs of intoxication during a field sobriety test, she agreed to take a Breathalyzer test and her blood alcohol concentration was above the .16 threshold for the more-serious aggravated charge. Jones said Kohlhofer "was above the legal limit" and admitted she drank wine before driving.

Jones said police were called at about 10:45 a.m. after Kohlhofer went through the Islington Street Dunkin' Donuts drive-through and crashed into an adjacent fence, causing significant damage to her car.
According to the District Court clerk's office, Kohlhofer has not yet been scheduled for arraignment.

Kohlhofer's husband, Andy, is active in politics in Fremont, serving on the town Budget Committee and the Fremont state Republican committee. He is also a founder of Fremont Citizens for Sensible Government.
Did I ever think that I would file a post under both winoism and faith?
