God bless

Mr. Quattlebaum's soul. People will never learn to drive with a seatbelt and not under the influence. I do not presume Mr. Quattlebaum was under the influence, but am making this statement as I( when I was a young man drove drunk and unrestrained so many times that people are lucky that I never harmed anyone) was guilty of absolute stupidity.
