Drunk Sooner

More than 100 college and university presidents across the country have rallied together to get the national drinking age lowered from 21 to 18, saying it will cut down on binge drinking and reduce the fear of retaliation in the event of alcohol-influenced emergencies. Opponents say that a lower drinking age will increase the number of drunk-driving deaths.

I personally don't push for any kind of moral imperative here. All I know is, if the drinking age had been 18 earlier this year, it would've been perfectly okay for me to liquor up the backstage crew during the Berkeley run of Jukebox Stories, which means I could've gotten the "barely legal" to be "legally drunk." I'll let you fill in the rest of the story.

  1. Prince, you are a respected theatre artist. It concerns me when you talk about getting teenagers drunk at one of your plays. My goodness, man!

  2. Oh, yes, Noel Alumit, taking the moral high ground.
