Bryson: "Underage Drinking. . .is not the problem"

Read the whole thing, including the link to a New Zealand post he provides:

What we need to do...is have a serious national discussion about why so many Americans drink solely to get drunk; not lightly buzzed, or socially lubricated, or blissed, but loose-limbed nasty drunk. We need to talk about why we do it, about how dangerous that is in the short and long term, and about how we can stop. We need to change the drinking culture in this country...and no one has a clue on how to do that without Prohibition-type thinking.

Ironically, "underage" drinking is probably the solution.
