The vitriol being spewed toward Mr. Gansler by readers is completely ridiculous. What gives these holier-than-thou individuals the right to scrutinize a public figure's personal parenting decision?
The same people attacking Mr. Gansler for not shutting down a chaperoned party are probably failing as parents themselves. By demonizing the attorney general, these folks are simply displaying their hypocrisy and self-righteous arrogance.
Are we really to believe that most parents would have acted differently if their own child were involved? That's highly doubtful.
A recent article in The Sun stated that about 20 percent of underage college students engage in excessive drinking in Maryland. I challenge these "outraged" parents to spend less energy criticizing elected officials and more time discussing the dangers of binge drinking with their own kids.
