We're Sovereign! We Demand-- oh, $17.5 million? never mind....

State Representative Tim Rounds (R-24/Pierre) says he's found a loophole in federal law that would allow South Dakota to lower its drinking age. But come on: Rep. Rounds and his fellow legislators proudly reasserted South Dakota's sovereignty with HCR 1013 last March. What kind of brave patriots are we if we have to look for a loophole to do whatever the heck we want?

Of course, Rep. Rounds says he won't pursue drinking age legislation if it would lose us $17.5 million in highway funds (and it will). So much for that major victory for the big brave state sovereignty movement.
