I find this number to be absolutely, completely mind-blowing -- but Minnesota law enforcement made 403 DWI arrests over the Thanksgiving weekend.

According to the State Patrol there have been 25,697 statewide DWI arrests so far in Minnesota. How insane is that!?!

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