same old rules/laws same old results. Why do Americans want to be such control freaks? The more weRead More tell kids what they can't do the more many will work to do it. So let's continue along the same lines and expect a different outcome, right? That's insanity isn't it. There should be no laws restricting drinking at any age. These laws do not work. Awareness, diligent responsible parenting and education of our kids is a must. But laws don't stop anything. Same with pot. The more we tell youth no the more they want to do it. Insanity.

How exactly could the parents not be aware of that many people behaving loudly downstairs? It's notRead More like the houses on Coast Oak are monster mansions with acres of land to spread out on. And why weren't they checking in occasionally anyway? Sounds like a very well-deserved citation!

"Store owners, and their adult customers, need to set the example and role model for youngRead More people to be responsible, or else we won’t. Adults must lead by example." While true that responsible adults should lead by example in this case setting examples has absolutely nothing to do with this. We have certain laws regarding selling to and buying for (alcohol) minors. Break the law suffer the consequence. Adults don't need to set any example they just need to follow the law. And these grants are a waste of taxpayer money. 'Grant' is just another name for a government $$ giveaway that someone else has to pay for... us taxpayers. if they really want to make this work them make the first infraction a $100,000 fine. How many merchants do you think will sell to minors if this were the consequence? And store owners should not be held accountable for fake IDs. That's not their problem.

we live in a world where the use of acronyms is out of control in my view. Nobody seems to be ableRead More to use our language properly and thus at every turn we see the use of acronyms. People who use them think everyone else understands any acronym they use. Case in point is this article where I needed to read almost the entire article before the acronym ACT was spelled out. Frankly I was wondering why the American Conservatory Theater (ACT) or the American College testing (ACT) groups were chiming in about superbowl parties. Where are we all going so quickly that we can't take time to speak using full words and complete? We have an entire new generation of people who are very challenges with speaking and writing in an understandable fashion. Not convinced of the absurdity here? check this site out. And this is only one acronym. http://www.acronymfinder.com/ACT.html
