Why I Love West Virginia, Part 9987
There are a number of reasons to love West Virginia, but you have to just love the common sense of my fellow citizens.
For two weeks now, our local newspaper (why by any objective account is an absolute disgrace- but hey, it is in color and online!) has been running what can only be classified as a hysterical shock campaign about the perils of underage drinking. Morgantown, is a college town with 25k kids. College students drink, even when they are not of legal age. Thus, there is a terrifying underage drinking problem- but not the kind you would think if you read the newspapaer. A couple days reading the blather and you would think that every 13 year old kid in Mon. County was drunk like a monkey.
At any rate, the newspaper asked people to send in their suggestions for ways to combat this horrible menace. How do you think the majority of West Virginians think you can combat underage drinking?
Lowering the drinking age to 18.
I love West Virginia.
