"We Should Lower the Drinking Age"
POLITICO (Dec 4, 2014)
Sexual violence on campus has been front and center in the press the past few months, with the consensus being that campus culture has to change. That's seismic change — one that might take a generation or so, or at least a a four-year student cycle or two. What might be done more immediately to improve the situation? In my first piece for Politico, I argue that lowering the drinking age back to 18 (or 19) would swiftly move campus drinking out of the shadows of basements and frat houses and into safer spaces.
