Tennessee has come up with a strategy to keep underage kids from buying beer: card everybody.
Comer Wilson hasn't had to show his ID to buy beer in a while. Maybe it's the 66-year-old man's long white beard.
Starting Sunday, gray hair won't be good enough. Wilson and everyone else will be required to show identification before buying beer in Tennessee stores - no matter how old the buyer appears.
How did 63-year-old Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen react to the new law?:
"I'll be very pleased when I'm carded, and in my mind I'll just imagine it's because I look so young," he said.
In my mind, I'll just imagine I live in a country where self-delusion isn't needed to make sense of the laws.
