So the problem is not solved, just moved along. Hence why I said earlier on it is just an ordiance for the council to pat themselves on the back.
The initiative for the alcolhol sales ordinance, and the initiative to address the greater public drunkeness problem, is coming from the public. I don't think any of the members of the city council are happy about having to deal with it. I can understand and respect that you consider the alcolhol ban wrongheaded.

The ban starts in April. You have me curious about whether or not Chimay will fall under the ban. A colleague of mine is a brewer and has mentioned Chimay on occasion. That's the beer made by monks? I think it's his holy grail in his beer making pursuits.

so banning something will work. Prohabition really worked didn't it..Education, yes, stronger DWI laws, yes, banning NO WAY!!
