Wisconsin Is the Place for Drunks To Thrive!

A teacher who showed up drunk to a field trip later sued her city. She is getting $75,000. - The Washington Post:
"It didn’t take long for the other teachers to realize that Maria Caya, one of the chaperons on a school field trip to a bowling alley, was seriously drunk.
As elementary-school students bowled in June 2013 in Janesville, Wis., Caya tried to order more drinks from the bar, city officials said.
At one point, Caya disappeared, worrying school officials. They found her in the bathroom, passed out.
Alarmed, a staff member drove Caya to the hospital, where doctors said her blood alcohol level was 0.27 — more than three times the legal limit to drive in Wisconsin.
She later told doctors she had been drinking since early that morning.
Predictably, Caya was not a schoolteacher for much longer: She resigned a month later, according to ABC-affiliate WKOW.
But in what some are calling a maddening twist, Janesville City Council has now voted to pay Caya $75,000."
