    ...make sure there's no alcohol in it before you give it to your 7-year-old son. Ouch.

    God damnit. Though, I'll take any reply right now. I was starting to worry it might fall off the front page with no replies.

    You saved the day, AQB...sorta.

    I feel sorry for the dad. I think the should jail the marketers of these piece of crap drinks that are not properly labeled as alcoholic. I could easily see this happening or a kid grabbing one from the fridge.

    I think the part of the story that's hardest to believe is that a tenured professor of archaeology was attending a baseball game. That seems a little low-brow for him.

    Maybe he's letting his hair down since he got tenure.

    He didn't want to, but his damn alcoholic kid was sick of fighting Nazis, eating monkey brains and trying to find the Holy Grail.

    Where have you been?

    The President of Yale used to be the commissioner of baseball.
     
  10. It's all about smart people being, you know, "elitist" and not caring about what good salt-o-the-earth types do for fun and blah-dippity-blah.
    And Perennially? Great post.

    Tenure makes people lazy and unmotivated. In fact, I've read it's the downfall of the entire NYC school system.
