    Note to self: Make sure food is dead before picking it up, especially rattlesnakes.

    That was my first thought - followed by "Hold my beer and watch this!"...

    DNR: 60% of snake bites are alcohol-related

    Those who've studied the numbers say while someone accidentally grabs or steps on a snake, people most often have no one to blame but themselves.

    According to Steve Bennett with the Department of Natural Resources, 70 to 75 percent of those were accounted for by people trying to catch or kill that venomous snake.

    "Right off the bat if you stop and you leave that snake alone you're going to eliminate 70 to 75 percent of the bites, now 60 percent of those involved alcohol, so there you go," said Bennett.

    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.
