1. No shit? I was wondering about that, but didn't bother to check because I figured there was no way

he'd be that stupid. Back then my state, Idaho, was still 19 and Montana was 18. It was just a few years later the government forced all the states to raise the age to 21.

2. He had to SAY it was 18 so he could appear to be of legal age to drink.


He is a fool if he thinks he could just make a statement like that, suggesting that not only was 18 the drinking age but that he was 18, and not assume someone would fact check him. Is he so arrogant to think he would be taken at his word?? He has already proven that his word is worthless.

He is learning the hard way that fact checking is the norm these days, especially in the era of tRump.

3. Drinking age raised day of gathering for "skis"

July 1, 1982. Brewskis. Coincidence?

4. I wouldn't call it an out-and-out lie, but a serious misrepresentation

Kav never said that it was legal for HIM to drink, just that high school seniors were legal to drink. One of the justifications used to raise the age back to 21 from 18 was that of-age HS seniors were able to easily supply underclassmen with alcohol. Also, anyone who had turned 18 or older at the time the law was changed was "grandfathered" in as to their purchases of intoxicating beverages.

He used a diversionary tactic, and seemed to get away with it, at least during the hearing.
