Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


choose responsibility.

The former President of Middlebury (and my thesis advisor and mentor) has been getting some attention for starting Choose Responsibility. John McCardell's organization is focused on lowering the legal drinking age to 18. Having spent time in the Dean of Students Office during the early years of my career (and being pretty loyal to Johnny Mac), I think his proposals make a ton of sense.

College kids drinking a few beers at a frat party isn't the issue. The issue is when 18 year olds with low tolerances hide behind dorm room walls and pound shot after shot of cheap liquor. I believe that a little bit of education will go a long way in this situation.

To learn more about views from both sides of the argument, check out this article from the Boston Globe. (Thanks, Nick!)
