Question of the week: Drinking age 18.

The big question posed his week was nearly 100 university presidents calling for the drinking age to be reduced to age 18 as a way to stem alcohol problems on campus. Oregon had three sign on: Dr. Thomas J. Hochstettler of Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Dr. Phil Creighton from Pacific University in Forest Grove and Dr. M. Lee Pelton from Willamette University.

Is this a civil liberty issue, a crime control issue or a civic values issue?
