Top-Shelf Madness

Before running off to Nanny State to save to children from the demon drink, I offer a new proposal.

Take the tax of all standard-strength beer. (4-6%)

Get them back to beer- good, affordable beer. Not the 3% crap we used to drink.

OK, the young and mindlessw will still get hammered, but are FAR less likely to die from drinking beer. One tends to puke it up first.

We are a culture of pissheads- accept that and find ways to work with it. Handwringing wowserizm ain't doing squat.

Not a complete answer, of course, but no complex problem has a single simple solution.

And I have seen bugger-all other practical ideas put forward...
