MADD Worried About 'Overindulgence'

Holy shit. Has anyone else ever actually visited the MADD website? Jesus. They mention both Pairs Hilton and Lindsay Lohan on their front news page, addressing the important concerns of the day:
News reports indicate that actress Lindsey Lohan was arrested and charged with DUI today in Santa Monica , California .

Lohan is willing to break the law and jeopardize the safety and well-being of innocent people driving on our roadways. She needs and deserves to have an alcohol ignition interlock installed on her car.

MADD asks the judge hearing her to case to immediately mandate that she only drive a vehicle that is equipped with an ignition interlock and that the device remain on the car until she receives the help she so obviously needs to deal with her pattern of alcohol abuse
So obviously needs...Nice. This is all reminds me of my mother's basket weaving classes on high-powered estrogen. Or that time I accidentally walked into a Curves studio with a trench coat on and began masturbating. That didn't last too long. I think the trench coat in July was a dead give-away. Or my Groucho Marx sunglasses and mustache. Or the fact that my cock was out. Yeah come to think of it, that was probably it. But Christ, the difference between the broads in Curves, or in my mom's basket weaving class, and the fascists at MADD is that these people actually have influence. It's scary when they feel the need to comment on things like this:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Amtrak is trying to gin up new business by offering $100 in free alcohol to customers on some overnight trains.

The national passenger rail company is making the unusual offer to promote a new high-end service being offered on a trial basis for certain sleeper car trips.

[...]

Christina Messa, vice president of marketing for GrandLuxe, said the drinks promotion is part of an effort to revive some of the luxury of old-fashioned, cross-country train trips.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving questioned whether $100 in free alcohol was too much.

"This sounds like a lot of credit toward possible overindulging," said MADD spokeswoman Misty Moyse.
It's a train. A very high end train service as well. Where people shell out 5-7,000 for week long trips, like a cruise but no water. What business, other than being attention whores, does MADD have commenting on this?
