I find this number to be absolutely, completely mind-blowing -- but Minnesota law enforcement made 307 DWI arrests over this past weekend.

According to the State Patrol there have been 26,810 statewide DWI arrests so far in Minnesota. How insane is that!?!

That's so crazy to me. I cannot for the life of me understand why we keep doing this. Drink, have fun, whatever -- but we need to stop getting behind the wheel. This is not going to end well.

We're going to crush the 27,000 mark this weekend. <sigh>
