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.
