Answer Me This


1. A. A Udall measure making its way through the Senate would
stop drunks from boarding a plane. The senator says he hopes his bill will bite into the number of passengers raging in a plane or driving home after landing in an intoxicated state.

2. C. Britnee Mendez was
struck by lightning while eating with her family in the garage. Her aunt says Mendez was flung across the room by the bolt. She was taken to UNM Hospital and released on Monday.
