Re "Air Force Academy's cadet spy fights ouster as scandals arise" (Page A10, Aug 10): If you are intelligent enough to go to a major college away from home, you should be smart enough to do what's right on your own. Lou Holtz, while football coach at Notre Dame had one simple rule to keep the scholarship on the team: "If what you are doing or about to do isn't something you would be doing if your mom or dad was with you, then it's wrong and you won't be here very long!"

Drugs, spiked drinks, forced sex, illicit parties may all be available to a college student, but these intelligent students needed mom and dad to send them out the door with proper moral foundations.
