Take the Wheel, Kid

Do you remember when your mom, dad or grandpa put you on his or her lap and let you, just a child, steer the car down some vacant rural road? Yeah, a lot of us have that memory and for the most part, it was probably hardly dangerous.

Do you remember when your mom, dad or grandpa put you on his or her lap and let you, just a child, steer the car down some vacant rural road? Yeah, a lot of us have that memory and for the most part, it was probably hardly dangerous. Such behavior is probably more frowned upon now - thanks a lot Bin Laden - but then it was just good, clean fun. Yeah, well it wasn't fun and/or funny last weekend when a convicted felon in Prineville got all hammered and let a 10- year-old steer the car... on the friggin' highway. Needless to say, things went awry and the vehicle crashed, injuring both the kid and the moron who facilitated the danger and is now in jail. Jeez, way to ruin a perfectly good childhood memory, pal. WTF?
