Charlie "Oops My Taxes" Rangel Stirs Up The Draft Again | Main | Tom McClintock on California as a harbinger of Obama's Second Term: "FLY, YOU FOOLS!" [Moe Lane]

Subtext Of A Lawsuit:

"I Am Incompetent And You Must Take Decisions Away From Me"

College chick goes to a fraternity party. College chick gets trashed and falls out of a window.

An Idaho college student and her parents are suing a University of Idaho fraternity, her sorority, university officials, and others for failing to prevent her from drinking too much alcohol...

At some point between her lifting a bottle and bringing it to her lips, one or all of these people or institutions were apparently supposed to jump out like a jack-in-the-box and swat it out of her hand.

Even though, as a college student, presumably she has attained the age of majority. The article mentions 'underage drinking,' but I think most of us associate that term with high school kids. Between years 18-21, you are not experiencing 'the tragedy of underage drinking.' You are 'breaking the law.'

And why expect others to stop you from drinking too much? Why not expect them to simply prevent you from ever being near windows? And keep you from going to parties, too.

Though I don't think this particular young lady is going to have any problem avoiding parties in the future.

Thanks to Ben Domenech.
