Regarding "A Drop of Wine, a Lack of Sense --- and How" (Meanwhile, June 5)
by Richard Cohen:

I had to shake my head in amazement when I read that a Colorado school
principal had been demoted because he allowed a group of teenagers to have
a sip of wine with a meal during a class trip to Paris.

How can someone who declares that "the laws of that
country"---France---"mean nothing to me" be superintendent of a school

What did he send the youngsters to France for in the first place --- to
have Big Macs, drink Coke and visit Disneyland?
