quote of the moment

"causing an accident that puts human life at risk because you're drunk
is horrible.
leaving a woman to die submerged in a locked car in 8 feet of water;
going home to bed while she's still alive and calling the police only
after her lifeless asphyxiated body is found? that is pure gothic
btw: Joyce Carol Oates, who wrote a book about Chappaquiddick once upon
a time, had a piece in the Guardian today. she seems to be of the same
mind. (interesting that it ran in a UK paper -- I'd be surprised to
see anything like this in the U.S.)"

(she already left this as a comment below, but it bears repeating in its
own right.)
