    Another sad tragedy in Kentucky.... I just hope it's not alcohol related...Our thoughts and prayers are with this family and the University of Ky students....

    Aaron, you have no clue what the circumstances were. You seem to rush to judgement about someone just becuase of where they were and what time it was. I happen to know Mr. Hardin personally, he was a good friend and a great person. Why don't you keep your preaching to yourself. The point is a good human being was lost in a tragedy. It would be nice for a change if people would just remember someone for the good things they did instead of bringing up their faults.

    I didn't say that I never drank rick. What I said was that if his blood alcohol was the key factor in him falling and hitting his head which led to his death, it would be a another reason for people to teach the younger folks what could happen if you overdue it even if you are old enough (27 years old) to know better. An accident is something that couldn't have been prevented; this could have been prevented.

    Just so you know, Aaron, his BAL was not a factor... And as a healthcare worker, if you want to show colleges what irresponsible drinking can do, show them pictures from fatalities due to drunk driving. We see that everyday, and yet its a responsible young man walking, or young lady last weekend, that gets the heat. Go figure.

    Aaron from earlier post, I am glad you want to know his bal after the tragedy that happens. I assume you have never drank in your life have you?

    Pretty sad and weird story but I'd like to know what his blood alcohol level was. Might be a good thing to post at UK or other colleges to show what irresponsible drinking can do (if that is what happened).
