When Is It No Longer Flattering To Be Carded?

76-year old Wisconsin man carded while buying non-alcoholic beer.
Wish the article had more information, like whether or not the clerk refused to sell the goods to a senior citizen, or just asked to see some ID, but still. Shouldn't a little common sense come into play here? Do you blame the "old man" for getting upset in the first place, or the clerk for not bending "the rules," or the owner for the policy, or the lawyers for the law suits that engendered the policy, or prohibition for getting this country so worked about about alcohol and appropriate drinking ages in the first place? Me? I blame society
And yes, yes, I know "newsfilter this" and "newsfilter that." But c'mon. It's Wisconsin
. Appreciate the irony.
