OK, I don't get it. What is wrong with This Picture? No, I
mean seriously, what's wrong with it? I see a group of friends having fun
on a boat. There's alcohol, yes, but none of them appear to be under age.
There's nothing wrong with adults drinking alcohol. And yet here we
have the president of a community college resigning because of a picture
showing him doing something completely legal. It "reflects badly" on the
college? What, we can't tell the difference now between an adult enjoying
alcohol responsibly and encouraging college students to drink under age? It
really seems like we're pressing the whole idea that alcohol's bad and being
caught with it is never a good thing -- and that doesn't help. It's
a big "don't push the red button" situation, and the more you tell kids not
to the more likely it is they will, just to see what happens. It's
what kids do.

I just don't get it.
