I got going on the beer topic and kinda left it hangin’ (thanks Rob for reminding me).
A day or so after writing that post, I received a mailing from ChooseResponsibility.org
It’s an organization founded by former Middlebury College President, John McCardell. Their mission is to lower the drinking age from 21 to 18. They have some unique ideas like a “learner’s permit” for consuming alcohol.
I really believe in this cause and think our entire approach to alcohol is misguided. I really recommend checking out their site. www.chooseresponsibility.org
Old enough to serve (go to war), but not enough to get served (a beer).
How does that make sense?
One thought on “Choose Responsibility”
Drew,Seems like an interesting idea. It reminds me of the way alcohol is approached in France. I studied there my junior year and my French siblings all had a bit of red wine with dinner (mixed with water for the youngest – a 6 year old!)Suzie 🙂
