How can I … ?

How can I tell my son to watch his language when the Metro system has a poster-sized advertisement that includes the phrase “go to hell”?

How can I teach my son to drive carefully when a local government representative only got a “warning” for driving over 100 mph on the beltway on her way to an “appointment”?

How can I teach my son about good sportsmanship when the defensive players on the Redskins were paid a “bounty” for “taking out” opponents?

How can I convince my son that smoking pot is not an acceptable recreational activity when a state lawmaker wants to sell it at state-run liquor stores to generate revenue?
