Elsewhere on the site, “I drink like an Irish sailor,” the Internet user name of a Greenwich High School student, writes that he is an avid oboe player, but his true vice is hard liquor. He lists Jack Daniels as the person he’d most like to meet.

Things like this make me cringe, having known some musicians with major drinking problems. I’m not surprised, though. I know drinking is a big thing for a lot of high school students. I’m sure it makes the quoted student a much better oboist, too. Oh yes. (Sad article.)

And kids who think myspace is a safe place to tell all are idiots.

That sounds a bit harsh. Sometimes truth is harsh.
