The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Couldn't it have waited?

It's bad enough that people feel it's okay to drive drunk. It gets worse when they decide to do it while towing their children around... but actually sitting in the school parking lot passed out? I can't even begin to describe just how worthless a mother must be to do that to her children. I suppose we have someone to thank for teaching the little kids enough to go get help rather than sticking around.

A 9- and 5-year-old walked into a Salem, N.H., restaurant looking for help because their mother was drunk and passed out in their car near an elementary school, police said Tuesday.

The siblings went to Sayde's Restaurant near the Soule Elementary School at 173 S. Policy St. on Monday and said that their mother was passed out in the car in the school lot. A witness called 911, and when police responded, they found Laura LaSorsa, 38, of Salem, in the car that was still running and in drive, police said.
