Coach fired for Parents Drinking Beer

Frederick County Maryland high school softball coach Brad Young has been fired. Young had an End of Season party at his house for his players and their parents. Some parents brought beer and drank it. None of the players drank beer. Young didn't drink any beer. But someone's parent thought it was inappropriate that children saw someone responisbly drink alcohol.

That's part of the problem we have in this country: Any alcohol comsumptions is seen as irresponisble. So our children learn to drink irresponsibly. By putting a negative connotation to alcohol consumption, we make our children feel like they have to sneak around to drink, and have to drink a lot at one time.
