A movement of university heads is afoot.
“Ohio State President Gordon Gee is among 100 college presidents calling on lawmakers to consider lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18. The presidents contend current laws actually encourage dangerous binge drinking on campus.”
Fine with me, but can we keep the 18 year olds out of my local bar, at least? I’ll go to hell for saying that, but the culture of drinking is so backwards in this country that it takes people until the age of about 22 or so until they can do it with an ounce of grace and sit there and enjoy it instead of sucking Bud Light through a funnel and puking it back up. I did plenty of both those things, so I’m not judging, I’m just saying that until our nation can have an adult relationship with drinking I’d rather the kids stay out of my bar. I guess I could just choose a bar not popular with the kids, though — say, one that doesn’t offer $3 pitchers and dollar cans. Not that there’s anything wrong with $3 pitchers.
