I wouldn't champion a reduction in the drinking age but I wouldn't vote against it either. If you're an adult at 18 in every other facet of our society than you should probably be an adult in this instance too even if it has a dark side.
I can't blame drunk driving orgs for fighting it though. I doubt it has anything to do with "teetotalism lifestyle". These people are from all walks of life.
so cars are feasible but buses aren't? Some kind of car service paid for by taxes on booze isn't? If you are talking trains, then fine, not always feasible. But there are programs that can be implemented.
I gotta disagree. some of these org's promote a ton of "responsbile drinking" and "don't drink or drive" but it doesn't seem like they do as much as they could to help people who have had too much to drink -- the ones they don't want driving.
It's one thing to say you don't believe it, but you can listen to their messages. They accuse colleges of "bad science" although their aversion to it is really a "think of the children" type argument. There are more logical reasons for it to be lower then there are the other side, considering the context of the debate.
