    Beth,

    That was in incredibly bad taste. Please remember this article is discussing the death of someone’s loved one, and the ridiculousness of people dying every year after consuming alcohol. And no, I don’t watch the Superbowl.

    I am sure you didn’t mean your comment the way it appears, but do please – be sensitive.

    Thanks very much.

    Dan
