Why you shouldn’t leave your kids at home when you vacay in Vegas

Have you seen the new “What Happens in Vegas” commercial? You know, the one where the Midwest couple flies to Vegas for a two-day jaunt, leaving their children behind? Oh wait. That’s not a commercial; that actually happened. The kids were 9 and 12, and the adults, Chicagoans Shanpreta Howard and Antowain Johnson, are now being charged with misdemeanor endangerment. Apparently, the 12-year-old told his teacher about his parents’ trip, and the teacher, in turn, told the police. The moral of the story: Just because it’d make for a good LVCVA commercial doesn’t mean you should actually do it.
