Can we find some way to blame this on St. Francis?

Los Altos High students are rediscovering the joys of white collar drugs, with a little help from their parents. There are a few things I don't like about the article -- not a single kid is interviewed, it doesn't mention private schools where the problem is surely worse, the football coach quit because his assistant coach was fired for badmouthing players and then failing to apologize -- but, in my experience as a coach there, the gist of the story is dead-on, particularly the assessment that parents of sophomores and juniors are covering for their kids.

Wow. Why didn't the Town Crier write about this? Guess with all the "good news" they report, they didn't have any space to write about how all the little rich kids in our town are turning into cokeheads. Hope the police throw the book at them, however, letting them self-destruct wouldn't be too bad...
