Duhon Cited By Ale Officer

Chris Duhon has been given a citation for underage drinking (he was not
arrested and this did not involve an automobile). As we said when similar
situations happened at Indiana, most
college freshmen drink and so on.
It's well within the normal
experiences of college freshmen to have a drink despite the law which makes the
legal drinking age 21. As far as we're concerned, it's a questionable
distinction at best. At 18 you are old enough to vote and to be shot at if you join the Army. We say old enough to be shot at, old enough to take
a shot.

That said, Chris should be aware that he is a public figure and while that
gives him a lot of perks, it also involves some tradeoffs. Having his name in
the paper for this is one of them.
