Beer Run

I couldn't resist adding this article. Only in Wisconsin could you run for beer and raise money. Here is the story. Have I mentioned yet that I miss home?

*As a note to the anonymous comment- If you have been a victim of drunk driving my heart goes out to you and all members involved. However... This article is talking about a charity event. This run was not intended as a free for all drinking fest. If you have some idea of a naked mile college run with lots of beer you are wrong. A beer run in Wisconsin is like a wine tasting on the West Coast. We may not be as sophisticated, but we are who we are and we drink what we drink.

And although I am very much against drunk driving, that is not my fight. My fight is here in D.C. dealing with injuries that were sustained by a roadside bomb. If you have further feelings on this matter, please feel free to tell the world. Just please take the crusade away from my blog.

Must not be a Mothers Against Drunk driving Organization in that state.

anonymous, there is a MADD chapter here, but I don't see anywhere in the article where it says it was driving race, it was a run.

Sounds like an unusual event, but it's nice that they rose $350,000 for charity by drinking and running.

I think you handled anonymous very well. He/she/it obviously can't read because Tracy is right, it's a run - not driving. Some people.
