Critical Thinking

Does anyone have time to read over an article and help me critically analyze it.

Google "We could, for example, save lives by denying drivers' licenses to those over 65, but we do not" (without quotes) and click on the De-Demonizing Rum: What's wrong with 'underage' drinking? - legal ...

I have been struggling with this article and could use all the help I can get.

Thanks

  2. I have read up on different types of rhetoric, but have only been able to find one example of it in this article.

    "It is a ludicrous and demeaning law..." (Stuttaford, 2004)would this be an example of rhetoric? If so, would it be a "hyperbole?"

    Can anyone help me find other examples of rhetoric in this article.

  3. Here are some phrases for you to look at. Also, look up the term "irony" in your book.
    A typical Texan of 19-let's call her "Jenna"
    Miller Time could now mean hard time
    cops dedicated to fighting the scourge of teenage tippling
    The crusade does not stop there
    for those parents 22think, a helpful series of danger signs compiled by the Texas Safety Network.
    indicator that your child is drinking may be the "smell of alcohol on [his] breath." Who knew?

    There are many more.

    So would "...for those parents 22think..." be an example of irony. Thanks for pointing this one out when I read this over I did not notice the play on words. What about "indicator that your child is drinking may be the "smell of alcohol on [his] breath." Who knew" I understand this is sarcastic, but what type of rhetoric is this?

  7. The tricky part is the article I found is in my University library, and you need to login to get to that. I have the file in pdf but i can publish it to the web. Besides emailing it, is there any other way I can share it?

  11. No, I can't access that one. I can access EBSCOhost, Newsbank, Proquest, net.library -- but not Opposing Viewpoints.

    Sorry.
