Yes it is true most high school kids experiment w/ alcohol. However, the "powers that be" did not do their job to make sure that such behavior isn't glorified in a school yearbook, especially a taxpayer funded school yearbook. Further it dishonors the families of children lost each year to underage drinking related accidents. It is very disheartening to me that parents of my generation(30's+) are increasingly brushing off the drug/alocohol use in children as "no big deal" b/c "we did it" and we turned out ok. The big difference when we were growing up..most of our parents weren't actively or passively condoning it, like some parent's today(i.e. Deerfield couple whose kids beer party resulted in a teen driving death) If we parent's don't stand for something, our kids will fall for anything. Once again another superior failure of leadership in the Winnetka school system.
