Are Republican politicians the only people who drink and drive, or just the only ones The Sun writes about?

Full disclosure: I don't know Baltimore County Councilman Todd Huff, nor am I affiliated with him in any way. But a charge of driving under the influence is serious under any circumstances ("Council member faces DUI charge," Feb. 24).

In a perfect world, no such charges would occur because all citizens would be responsible for their actions. However, this is not utopia, and perhaps everyone who receives a DUI should be identified by name, with all details duly noted in a daily Sun column.

After all, why should only Mr. Huff have that privilege in a column measuring over 12 inches in length and accompanied by a photo?

Oh, wait! How silly of me! He's a Republican!
