Drunk Driving

Tonight 60 Minutes ran their story on Nassau D.A. Kathleen Rice's campaign for harsher sentences for drunk drivers who kill people. The story revolved around the horrible wedding day crash that killed a limo driver (Stanley Rabinowitz) and an 7 year old flower girl (Katie Flynn). The drunk driver, Martin Heidgen received 18 years to life. During the broadcast, a detail was mentioned by Katie Flynn's father that I forgot about: Flynn's father, who was also severly injured in the accident, received last rites by Msgr. Costello, a priest who later would be killed by a drunk driver.
