I am so glad my parents didn't have me arrested for having house parties on Schley Drive when they were away on vacation. One time a window did get punched out, but my old friend Marty repaired it before the folks got home.
A Natural Bridge dad actually had his 17 year old daughter arrested for doing what countless teens have done when left alone at home.
Of course 'back in the day', the drinking age was 18 so a party while attending JCC was OK. In fact they used to have beer blasts at the school.
As for any indescretions in my life, I feel the statute of limitations has passed on teenage house parties, although the NY Times has decreed a prep school bullying incident is relevant if running for high office.
