    Just all around sad. Folks just don't think about how something like this can follow them around for the rest of their lives.

    Heard a talk show guy on the radio last night, and I think he has a point. The second young man? His *parents* apologized on his behalf? Called him their "boy"? He's 18-19 years old; when are his parents going to make him start owning up to his mistakes?

    He has tainted his own name, his family's reputation, his fraternity's name, and the school's reputation.

    Too little....

    too late.

    An apology is called for, but it can't fix anything.

    Their "parenting" may be where he got this sort of idea. He may be their child, but they need to let him be responsible for what he has done. They have done him a disservice trying to apologize on his behalf no matter how well intentioned.
