Hot-car story lacks some crucial details

Regarding your news article about the mother who left her child locked in an SUV June 19 while she took an exam at Virginia College, I found your coverage to be lacking in one significant area.


While your article discussed in-depth background data from authorities including the National Weather Service, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning among others, there was no mention whether Virginia College offered a child care service for students.

I don’t know about you, but to me this would be an important fact to consider in the matter, not to mention possible culpability on the part of Virginia College.

I don’t condone the actions of the mother, but as a parent of two teenage daughters, I understand the mistakes a young person can make. Perhaps all of us should take a trip down Memory Lane when we were once young.

By the way, I am a longtime subscriber to your newspaper, and I am not a Georgia Bulldogs fan, a golf fan, a NASCAR fan or a Republican.

Do us all a favor and survey your paid subscribers to see what their interests are for the newspaper they buy.
