Adolescent Bravery, Then & Now

Contrary to popular legend, an adolescent George Washington never confessed to cutting down his father’s cherry tree (it’s a famous myth, posthumously fabricated by one of Washington’s biographers).

But, a certain Kaplan offspring did confess to something roughly equivalent this morning: the reason our extra car (and his ride to/from school) was dead is because he left the headlights on overnight.

I was skeptical that the battery was low, given that it just started less than 10 days ago when local temps were literally 50 degrees(!) colder (more than 70° degrees, factoring in wind chill).
