Lab school teacher giving alcohol to students.

The report of Lab School students getting alcohol at a teacher's home seems to be part of a "smear job," to discredit that school, by those that want to close it and bus 100 kids to Janesville. It could be either entrapment or just plain "spying" that some people do, toward their neighbors.

When I was in high school, one boy brought a jug of "moonshine," to a Sadie Hawkins Day dance at the school, and offered others a drink of it. I didn't go near him, because I always wanted to avoid conflict in school.

The Principal, whom I... respected, although some others didn't, wanted to punish that boy, but was reportedly overruled by the boy's father,
who was on the school board, and just laughed at him.

In two more years, our country got into the Korean War, and drafted a slave army to fight it. Those young soldiers had never been allowed to legally buy beer.

In France, their Constitution prohibits the use of draftees for foreign wars, unless their country is invaded. By avoiding war, France saves enough money to offer free college tutition to all students.
