CNN.com - Mom sues Coors over son's death in accident - Apr 18, 2004: "Jodie Pisco, of Reno, contends Coors has failed in its duty to protect the country's youth from drinking. Her son, Ryan, was killed in 2002 after he drank Coors at a party and drove his girlfriend's car into a light pole at 90 mph, the lawsuit says."

Where does this woman get off? Her son drinks until he decides to drive his girlfriend's car, despite not having a valid license (stated later in the article) and, traveling 90 drives it into a light post? This is the fault of Coors??

Hey, lady, where were you? Why didn't you know where your son was? I hate to say it, but if you have a right to sue Coors for "failing in its duty to protect the country's yout from drinking," then I should have a right to sue you for the same reason. You're way closer to the action than Coors. It's nice to try and pass blame, but where your own son is concerned, you have no right to blame anyone but yourself, his father, and him. Ultimately, no matter what society throws at a child, that child's rearing is still the responsibility of his parents.
