Letter to the Editor: Does a six-pack make one an alcoholic?

Realistic and down-to-earth Sarah Palin presents in speeches “Joe Six-Pack,” guys who drink a six-pack of beer after working hard as the foundation of America.

Child Protective Services and their contractors claim that anyone who drinks a six-pack is an alcoholic in need of both their expensive treatment programs and possible court seizure of his kids.

Will superior court commissioner Neil Shepherd (who is a very good man) finally remove the wool that has been pulled over his eyes and stop the extremist, out-of-control CPS from intruding upon and in some cases totally destroying the lives of Tahoe’s Joe Six-Packs?

This includes cases where only once in many years of being together and one of thousands of times of sipping a few beers that during an argument Joe Six-Pack loses his temper and slaps his wife. We all know this is wrong, but should a man’s whole life be turned up side down because of one mistake?
