Parent's can work hard, or not so hard, on trying to send their kids down a path that keeps them out of the headlines - but often it doesn't matter. And in every case mentioned above it doesn't mean that the individuals involved are somehow satanic. Mistakes were made, life goes on, maybe they'll learn from the transgressions, maybe not. I'd like to think I've learned from my less than perfect early years.
Leave Ashley Biden alone and leave Sarah Palin's family alone and keep stories like these out of the mainstream of media. We should all boycott this type of "news" and maybe it will go away.
