Underage Drinking and Zero Tolerance
This is my first hit on the WaPo op-ed page, so I'm kinda ' jazzed.

A good column indeed and I strongly agree with the general thrust of it. I do have one caveat though. You equate "adult supervision" with "taking the car keys." Taking the keys is, of course, crucial, but alcohol can injure and kill even without a car involved. I would hope that parents doing the "supervising" are also making sure that kids are not engaging in high-risk forms of drinking that can and do lead to hospitalization and death.
I'm ALL for parents allowing, if not encouraging, the responsible use of alcohol by teenagers (the current law is ridiculous), but preventing them from driving is not the only form of responsibility needed.

Excellent column, I could not agree with you more. I think America would be a much better place to live if the police were more like Andy Taylor instead of the armed and vicious nannies that we have now.
