Tragedy revisited

Food for Thought

This summer’s spate of child deaths resulting from being left in hot cars brings back memories of 2001, when a woman from Iowa left her young daughter in a hot car for several hours, forgetting that it had been her turn to drop her off at daycare before going to her job. The child died and Iowans were divided over the matter of blame. Should the woman be prosecuted for neglect, or should the event be deemed a tragic accident?
