Lower Mandatory Retirement Age for Goofy College Professors!

By John Lillpop

Logic 101 should be a required course for those 100 college professors who think it makes sense to lower the drinking age to 18 because 21 has spawned "a culture of dangerous, clandestine `binge-drinking` -- often conducted off-campus."

Binge drinking can be reduced by lowering the drinking age?

A corollary example: Reckless motorists drive 50 miles per hour in a school zone, thereby endangering children.

The solution?  Raise the speed limit to 55!

Or, illegal aliens threaten the economy, health care and homeland security of American citizens.

The solution?  Grant amnesty to the invading criminals and bingo! there goes the illegal alien problem.

A better idea: Let`s lower the mandatory retirement age for goofy professors: Age 24 sounds about right!
