This is the kind of thing that makes me shake my head. According the this story, there are about 25 states that have recently passed laws allowing online sales and shipping of alcohol. Of course the problem comes from the easy access this provides to youngsters who shouldn't have that access. There's a very difficult line to draw here between freedoms and protections. And surely there are ways to monitor the system better. Those whose business it is to provide this kind of service should be responsible for being more responsible about their customers. Ultimately, however, the onus falls on us to be aware of what our kids can find online and make sure they are mature enough to know better.
