    People can weep and whine about those lines, but they HAVE to be there. When the drinking age is 21, it's 21, and that means if you are 20 years 11 months 30 days 23 hours and 59 minutes old, you can't drink.  Too bad, so sad, that's the way it is. Don't like it?  Tough.

    And of course the hardcores will weep and whine no matter WHERE the line gets drawn. So attempting to please them is both impossible and a waste of time.  Fuck 'em. Let 'em weep and whine. (shrug)

    PS--please do not presume to tell me how I feel.  I know exactly how I feel.  You, do not.
