Certainly, let’s lower the legal drinking age to 18. Or 16. Or 14. How about 10? But then, 9-year-olds would drink too much. Maybe no age limit at all. Then no one would overindulge. And we could lower the minimum age for military service so no one could complain that they were allowed to drink but not kill. (Now they may kill but not drink.)
I am 74 years old and if the minimum drinking age were changed to 75, I’m sure my 74-year-old buddies and I would be staging drinking games, falling off balconies and puking on your lawn. Most of us would not be in college and therefore not the concern of college and university presidents (8/20, A-1, “Lower the drinking age? Some colleges say maybe”).
Were they educated in our school systems?
College presidents want to lower the drinking age to 18, thus proving the adage “Send an idiot to college, and you have an educated idiot.”
