Kick Them When They're Down?
I find it the Monday morning quarterbacking we see after an incident such as the collapse of that freeway overpass in the East Bay disturbing, to say the least. People immediately look to blame someone and in that case, naturally, the driver falls under scrutiny.
Now we find out the driver had a criminal record of sorts and some are questioning why he was allowed to haul hazardous cargo. Sorry, if I don't go along with that one. Isn't the guy allowed to have a job after he's paid the price for his past criminal activities? Some people apparently think not.
Enter the San Francisco Chronicle's, Debra Saunders. She takes a look at the issue and, as far as I'm concerned, leaves little left to be said.
