The family plan

And they say family togetherness is dead:

Lebanon -- Three adults face possible charges in Boone County after police found them with a drunken teenager. Two of those arrested were the boy's mother and grandmother.

Officers were called Saturday to an apartment complex in Lebanon, where they found the 15-year-old "visibly intoxicated," according to Lebanon Police Lt. Brent Wheat.

The boy's mother, Carolyn McAninch, 41, also was intoxicated, police said.

[. . .]

Police also arrested McAninch's boyfriend, John Westfall, 45, and the teen's grandmother, Margaret Cornett, 78.

 [. . .]

The boy tested at twice the alcohol level at which a motorist is considered intoxicated, according to police.

Hey, at least they were supervising his drinking, just like they do in France. Just a little red wine with dinner, you know, and the boyfriend starts showing off and things get out of hand. These things happen.

That surprises me about LEBANON, PA...that's AMISH country.
And even the Mennonites around there aren't THAT much "in touch" with such frivolity.

The times they ARE a'changin', hmm?
