Do American Kids Need A Learner's Permit For Beer?
SEVERNA PARK, Md. (Wireless Flash) -- Do American teenagers need a learner's permit for beer? The 20-year-old intern on a Maryland-based radio show called "Beer Radio" thinks so.( More preachin to the choir here. Amen sistah!Collapse )

I'm not saying there's a connection, but it's more than enough evidence for the global warming crowd. Current Mood: Thirsty
