Someone once told me that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the biggest drinking day of the year. Or maybe it was the Friday after. Whatever the case, here is a sobering reminder as we go into a season of abundant opportunities to overindulge: an article that ran on the front page of the Chicago Tribune today.

Josh Jahn, pictured in the photo, lost his wife and two children in an accident involving a driver who was drinking and allegedly ran a stop sign, hitting their vehicle. The funeral was held at First Christian Church in Morris, IL where the Jahns were members.
