Meanest Mom on the Planet?!

That's what she called herself:  the mother who put her 19-year-old son's car up for sale after finding alcohol in it.  She made everything very public by placing an ad in the Des Moines Register, which has a daily circulation of more than 150,000.  There were some pretty conflicting opinions in the report:  One woman said she didn't think the punishment was "very motherly"; a psychologist said it was an example of good parenting.

Your turn:  Was it fair, or did it go too far?  And how would your parents have reacted if they found alcohol in your car?
