Last Call



...The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is using undercover agents across the lone star state to begin arresting bar patrons for being drunk—while they’re still sitting inside the bar. A spokesperson for the commission said that sitting at a bar doesn’t exempt you from laws that would otherwise be applied to people who weren’t at the bar, and by arresting them before they leave the establishment, the inebriated people won’t have a chance to get behind the wheel when they leave the pub. It doesn’t seem to matter if you have a designated driver with you or not.
...The spokesperson, Carolyn Beck, said, “There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they’re intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car.”
...Ms. Beck and her friends at the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission are showing us that people can do stupid things when they’re sober, too.

I’m waiting for them to next go after kids who play auto racing video games. They could cite them for driving without a license.

I don't know what's worse, this law in Texas, or the one about dog-groomers. This is why it pays to be a libertarian. Sheesh!
