What do I think? I think it is WRONG to publish the names of these men until or unless they are found guilty. Yes, the press is within their right to to this. But just cause you, Mr. Hart, have the right to publish this information, do you ever think what this could do to the jobs these guys may have or the relationships between them and others who know them? Answer me this -- WHY is the inclusion of their names of ANY importance in this article? And don't just say b/c it's public information or because you printed a disclaimer. This is irresponsible, Mr. Hart. Would you publish the name of your son/daughter (if you have any old enough to drive) if one of them was CHARGED with DUI/DUID?

And, by the way, this month is spelled "May," not "MAT." Were YOU sober?

Thanks for your comments Mike. I'll take your opinion under advisement. Thanks for reading.

I'm sure the troopers did a field sobriety test and it sounds like they both failed. The public is entitled to know what type of peple they are.

Mike doth protest too much, methinks.
