A regular reader passed along a news item which belongs in the blog.
But first, since the statute of limitations has long since expired, I can make the following confession: When I was in high school, I had a fake i.d. that allowed me to buy alcohol even though I was not yet 18 (which was the legal drinking age at the time).
I may need fake i.d. again.
You see, if I choose to order a drink in a bar or restaurant in Gunnison County (Co.), I will be carded. And if I am 60 or older (which, alas, I am), they won’t just refuse to serve me; they will instruct me to leave.
It’s all a part of the county’s effort to protect old people like me from the coronavirus.
Think I can pass as a 59-year-old?
