But do these academic folks ever leave their college towns? Stumbling back to one's apartment or dorm room after a night at the frat party or bar is one thing. The thought of 18-year-olds drinking legally and then getting behind the wheel in, like, Overland Park, is another.
Ms. Shelly raises an idea that no one is advocating (18-year olds drinking and driving) and then attacks it. It's easy to win arguments (in your mind) when you make up ridiculous claims and then attack them for being ridiculous.
