    Wisconsin Senate majority leader (D) said it would be "too severe" for the state to upgrade a third drunken-driving offense to a felony

    MADISON, Wis. -- The Wisconsin Senate majority leader said it would be "too severe" for the state to upgrade a third drunken-driving offense to a felony.Weston Democrat Russ Decker gave the Wisconsin State Journal the example of someone who gets caught driving drunk three times over 40 years. He said that person isn't necessarily a felon.In Wisconsin, drunken driving becomes a felony after the fifth offense.
    In other comments, Decker said he'll accept the forthcoming $2,500 pay raise for lawmakers over the next two years. At least two state lawmakers have said they won't accept the raise during these economically trying times.Decker added that he doesn't think lawmakers will raise the cigarette tax. It increased $1 to $1.77 a pack on Jan. 1, 2008.

    Ha. Beat me to it. It was in the papers this morning. For being a liberal paper, they actually reported something negative about a democrat

    Now I understand.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    I never really paid much attention to NH's DUI laws, but I did in Alaska, so I was suprised at the laxness of the laws here. In AK, any combination of DUI's and refusals adding up to a total of three within 10 years is a felony, and if I remember right it is a misdemeanor on the first one. I think DUI should be criminalized for all offenses, if only a misdemeanor for the first one or two.
