Did anyone else see a bigger possible misquote in that RW story? Something about parties and beer??????? Particularly the time of life of those parties?! She should correct that quote. isn't 21 the drinking age in all states?
Read the article again. shocking. one beer is a bad example.
The QOD pales in comparison IMO as a role model.
Get the stick out of your @ss.
I'd rather have young people drink in the presence of older adults or at least be more likely to have older adults around in their daily lives than having them make mistakes on their own with less of a support structure around them.
WTF!? At least read the blasted article:
“She’d have a beer,” Cronin said, “while the rest of us would have like 20.”
Yeah, I'm so sure lots of adults were at these parties. 20 beers!! She was at a binge drinking kegger according to her "friend". You want your daughter attending that? How many had the judgement not to drive after 20 beers?
You grow up. It's irresponsible shameful behavior. Binge Drinking is not cool.
You don't think 20 beers might have been an exaggeration? I mean, it is a convenient round number. Or do you interpret that as fact? You don't think that it is possible that an elite athlete may have limited herself to one while still having fun with her peers?
I have yet to witness such a dramatic change in a young persons behavior that magically they become more responsible at 21 as opposed to 18. People are going to do stupid things and make mistakes. I'd rather have young people learn their lessons earlier and get it out of their systems.
