Underage Drinking In Restaurants

Frank Bruni, The NY Times food critic, also blogs in the newspaper’s Diner’s Journal. Last week he wrote about the appropriateness of  close-to-legal customers being served alcohol, and linked to an interesting article in the Detroit Free Press. Both are worth reading, but I can’t help thinking that the issue is simple and clear. Regardless of what one might think of our country’s laws governing the consumption of alcohol (and I think they are ridiculous), we have to respect the rule of law. This is not a civil rights issue, where civil disobedience may be appropriate, or in fact the only correct and right behavior. This is about twenty year olds wanting to drink at restaurants.
