    Well, old Mel certainly isn't the only hazardous senior buzzing around on Florida's highways and byways. But if he hadn't been such a reliable big donor to AG Eric Holder's political party over the years, might he have been more likely to have had the book thrown at him (justifiably)?

    In any case, c'mon, Mel. You're a rich one-percenter. If you're going to get wasted, hire a driver, trickle down a little bit you cheap b-----d. Though you've arguably paid your debt to society for ginning up bogus securities class actions, there can be no forgiveness or redemption for an old-enough-to-know-better drunk who takes innocent lives on the road.
