    Loss of his means of making a living would be more serious than his loss of a state house seat. A sad ending to a well-liked house member. His seat will probably be one of the more interesting races of the coming season.

    There’s been a lot about Crotts. Any other interesting challengers to come forward, or will it be a typical re-elect the incumbent year?

    I don’t really see it as a slap on the wrist, and I’m partisan as hell. He lost his license for a year, at least, maybe three. Minimum 17 weeks of treament? he has two DUI’s right? Chances are he’ll be evaluated with alcohol dependency. It looks like he got treated just like most habitual offendors. DUI offendors, that is. But I’m not gonna start a ‘drug war’ flame here.
