    How unfortunate that Stewart R. Miller didn’t die instead of his victim. But hey, who am I to judge. Everybody travels on the wrong side of the highway from time to time.

    Nicely done Stewart, you have shattered the lives of many and effectively ruined your own, too bad it wasn’t you who died we’d have one less idiot to worry about. I hope your family is mighty proud of you Mr Miller.
