Thank you Christie. Yes I am now officially an adult with all the rights and privilages thereof (except car-rental.) Having now legally indulged in alcohol I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the current drinking age is the most preposterous BS. They check my ID more stringently when I buy a drink than they do when I board a plane, write a check, or buy a gun. All of those actions are rather more significant than beer.
