Readers Are Stunned Shoemaker Was Able to Collect on Accident

February 27, 1993

Alcohol is a cunning, baffling and powerful drug. Denial and blame are frequently associated with a person having an accident while under the influence.

First, one denies the .13 blood test results. Then one blames Ford Motor Co., the Highway Dept., and finally, Glendora Community Hospital, for one's injuries.

How anyone could mention the Loyola-Hank Gathers case in the context of Bill Shoemaker's accident is beyond my comprehension. There is no analogy.
