I have to admit American laws regarding alcohol are way too restrictive. I remember in Cape Cod when we walked up to a bar in a restaurant to get a Shirley Temple for my daughter while I was gonna get a Sam Adams. We were informed it was against the law to have a child - even accompanied with an adult - be served a non-alcoholic drink in a RESTAURANT. So we went to wait outside for our table. No drinks. Massachusetts is tight assed. That's where Montreal has a one-up on American cities - that's about it since we have regressive politics and left-wing nonsense like most places. Nonetheless, we're a little more lax about those things. My belief is societies that have reasonable alcohol laws have less drunkards. That and cultural factors I suspect. You simply don't see drunks in the Mediterranean Latin world like you do in, say, England, Northern Europe and North America. Anyway. I'm rambling. Too buzzed at the moment.
