What example set?

Los OsosJune 19, 2014 

No, Mr. de Mont, you are not the only one who would find that having a martini fundraiser on a Sunday for a school distasteful. And any other day as far as that goes. It boggles the mind, especially when you stop to think about how many drunks are sentenced for killing, maiming, rapes, suicides, broken homes and whatever else can be thought of!

Some call this setting examples for our kids, but what kind?

How many fundraisers do you see in this county that people flock to as long as they are promised lots of local grape product? Frankly, I liked it better when the air was filled with horse sweat and cow manure!
