99 bottles of beer and you

Too many people break the speed limit on the highways. The obvious solution? Raise the speed limits!

Obesity is a growing problem (no pun intended) in our elementary and middle schools. The obvious solution? Lower the price of candy bars!

The song, “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall,” used to be a joke. I mean, seriously, who would drink 99 bottles of beer? Even the best of beers lose their flavor after your 18th bottle.

And yet, this has become the theme song for many college presidents.

I recently read an article about how nearly 100 college presidents (from well known U.S. universities) have lobbied lawmakers to consider lowering the drinking age. Their logic? Uh ... lowering the drinking age will decrease the amount of binge drinking on campuses.

Each year, more than 500,000 college students suffer drinking-related injuries. As a result, about 1,700 of them die each year.

By the end of this year, approximately 14,000 people will have died from alcohol related traffic accidents. There are 1.4 million drunk driving arrests each year in this country.

Alcohol sales in the U.S. exceed $100 billion each year. Alcohol consumption for people 14 years or older averages 2.25 gallons of alcohol per adult per year.
