"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."
Erik at Almost on the Range starts out with a harpoon for his pathetic mayor, and winds up fisking the Duluth newspaper.

"Mr. Bergson was not at all cooperative," said Washburn County (Wis.) District Attorney J. Michael Bitney of the single-vehicle accident that led to Bergson's arrest on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. "He was trying to get the hell out of Dodge."
(Bergson) e-mailed that, "I hit a patch of ice." Wisconsin state trooper Anthony DeStefano's report said, "The road conditions were good. The roadway was relatively dry." "I received lacerations to the head and face," Bergson e-mailed. "I have sore arms, shoulders and neck. My seat belt probably kept me in the car, but the airbag did not work." Trooper DeStefano wrote that "It looked like the driver was not wearing his seat belt, and the driver's head hit the steering column and windshield."
