From one my non-drinking buddies from last night:
I’m inclined to agree with the fellow who emailed you regarding this issue; there are a few students here who would gladly drink if they were legal, but alas, the government has intervened against such law-abiding citizens. The law hasn’t convinced such people that drinking is wrong; they just respect the law too much to imbibe alcohol. And recall, the group of people who choose not to drink because of the law are far from representative of college students as a whole — or even of Davidson College students. And I can personally assure Rod Dreher you’re not lying.
