This is truly a two-DUDE story.
Nine students were caught yesterday in the gymnasium of a Montgomery County middle school in possession of a noxious brew, police said: vodka, wine, tequila and rum, mixed with various fruit juices and concealed in water and soft-drink bottles.Of these nine students, eight of them seventh-graders and one a sixth-grader. So they were what? 11 or 12 years old?
That's the first DUDE.
Now, get this: They were caught drinking this brew the first thing in the morning.
[Carol] Weiss [the principal] said two students alerted her at 7:40 a.m. that they suspected that a group of students were drinking alcohol in the bleachers while waiting for classes to start. She rounded them up and alerted police.DUDE the second.
That's some pretty serious stuff to be downing before classes start. The principal has recommended suspension or expulsion. I'd throw in a little A.A. for good measure. These kids have some serious issues they'd better deal with right away.
