Gavin Newsom's “Access to Education” Event Held at Bar Inaccessible to Students

Young man! Let's see some ID!

You know what gets in the way of an event highlighting the dire plight of young people? Young people.

San Francisco's erstwhile mayor Gavin Newsom was last week honored at a slammin' San Diego party. But this wasn't just a fiesta for a fiesta's sake. The purpose of this gathering was, according to the invitation, to highlight the importance of an “accessible-by-all higher-education system in California.”

In the very next paragraph, however, the organizers noted “We apologize in advance, but STINGAREE is a 21-and-over venue.”

Huh. It's a shame our higher-education system isn't more accessible. Otherwise we'd know the meaning of irony when we see it.
