One more cost of our ever-more-instrusive State
Dad takes seven-year-old son to a ballgame. Dad--he's a U. of Michigan professor who doesn't watch much TV--buys son "hard lemonade," not knowing that it has alcohol.
Policeman sends son to the hospital, and Dad (and his wife) lose custody of son for 48 hours.
It wasn't anybody's fault, you see. Everybody was just following "protocol".
