This scenario is a small minority of fatal motor vehicle crashes on
USA public highways and streets.
The drug-specific fatal and otherwise serious vehicle crashes on USA
"public highways" (including every city and suburban street regulated by
the "Vehicle Code" of any of USA's 50 "States") appears to me to usualy
Relevant highly at least in part, rather often entirely to at least one
drug that is *legal* in USA and all 50 of its "States": Often, one
"legal drug" contributing to public highway vehicle crashes is one
where USA enected a constitutional amendment against - so unsuccessfully
as to have that drug's mostlyΊn be repealed by a sool-following

And "news"casting being what it is today, and the age of instant
information, the drug related crashes (like the one in NY recently IIRC) are
man bites dog stories that are the fodder of our nightly "news".
One night on the local news, there was a clean up crew. A street department
employee was working. Along came a drunk alien and pinched him between his
car bumper and the bumper of the parked two ton service truck at 40 mph.
Instant double amputation. News film of two men in white suits, smeared in
blood, using a shovel and towels to clean up the scene. I don't know about
you, but a well written short description would have conjured up just as
good of a mental picture as seeing the real thing. But NO, they had to show
it on the "news". You know, evening news .......... at dinner time.

God, I hope the camera crew were able to get in there and get real close
ups. Maybe some good footage through the curtains in the ER. And don't
forget the funeral home, and graveside services. Man, that's REAL "news"!
Talk about stupid.
Heeeere's yer sign.
At some point, when the TV crew does an ambush interview of the grieving
widow, there must have been an occasion when the widow or her relatives
simply said 'you asshole', and decked the reporter and the cameraman.
How come we never see that video?
I'm sorry when anyone dies, but it seemed pretty obvious that Billy Mays'
hyperactivity was something above normal. It's not much of a surprise that
he may have been using drugs, prescription or otherwise.

Except, of course, those in the NG who claim never to have done such a
thing. Or any other thing. And only make comments about those of us human
sinners who have. Billy was a hoot, as were lots of his predecessors and
cohorts who are no longer with us. With the exception of a few who really
hurt others or involved children, they lived their life on choices, and I
have no bad feelings. Hell, I got family and relatives that are the same
way. Yes, sad when anyone dies, condolences to his family. He had kids and
a wife. And I don't have really bad feelings about the real rotten apples.
Mostly just a sense of sadness to think they had it all and it wasn't
