"The kids will set up, staff and insure the drunk tents if they think this is a better idea for next year. But that would take away the "spontaneousness" of the event wouldn't it once it got organized and regimented. Hey you, go to the drunk tent. Now."

I doubt they would let them set it up - and the tents would not be jails, they would be for people who are too inebriated to control themselves or have a hard time understanding what is happening. Other people would help guide them and go there for their own protection and it would be a place where they would feel safe and could sleep it off. Law enforcement could also direct people there and drop them off. They could leave the area at any time.

Festivals often have what are usually referred to as 'chill tents' or 'chill areas' where people who have taken too high of a dose of molly or some psychedelic substance can go chill out if they want. They are usually filled with a lot of blankets and pillows and can also turn into a more quiet social environment.

In this case I would recommend some staffing for the protection of the people there and they can determine if medical attention is needed.

A lot of my recommendations are not really realistic based on how society currently functions, the whole idea of having to get insurance to setup a place for people who got themselves too drunk and would otherwise be arrested is pretty ridiculous. But my goal is to change how society works.

"I welcome the entire range of new and young conservative voices that are out there today."

Speaking of young and edgey, checkout Rand Paul's store on his website.

There is an NSA Spy Cam Blocker - Edward Snowden informed us that the NSA has the ability to remotely turn on anybody's laptop who is connected to the internet and spy on them in real time. Snowden also informed us that the NSA employees pass around naked pictures like a college frat. The NSA Spy Cam Blocker is a clip that goes on your laptop and blocks the webcam, and can be easily shifted over for when you actually want to use the webcam. Complete with Rand logo.

They also have some great 'skins' for smart phones, ipads, laptops, beats headphones, etc..

Rand Paul consistently polls higher than any other Republican candidate against Hillary Clinton - so if the Republicans want a candidate who can actually win, they should choose Rand. Rand is very pro-defense - although not very pro-offense. Only a minority of Republicans are as hawkish on military as we saw in the years after the 9/11 attacks. Since the end of Bush Jr's second term, most Republicans have become a bit wary of an overly strong foreign policy. They have seen how it doesn't really solve anything, creates power vacuums, costs us money and loses elections.

If progressives and independents want a candidate who is not beholden to special interests in banking, military and other large corporate sectors then they should avoid Hillary Clinton and choose a candidate like Rand Paul.

Don't let the media make the choice for you, that is the biggest mistake you can make. If you let the media make the selection, it will be Jeb or Hillary.

nativeson, I don't know how many times I have to say it for how many different topics, but if your opinion of something is based off what you watch in the media then you can count on being consistently wrong. I don't care if you watch Fox News, MSNBC or KEYT, they are all complete trash and are all playing off of the divide and conquer strategy.

"A news report out of Rexburg, Idaho states that a 20-year-old woman lied about being raped after "an attack of conscience" following consensual sex.

"Lewis said this is not an uncommon occurrence in Rexburg. 'We run into that all the time,' he said." The woman won’t face any charges for making any false claims, and police consider the matter closed."

Repeat: "We run into that all the time."

Women are also raped by men at times. This is a well written piece and it is great there are people out there helping women who have been victims of sexual assault.

Dozens of parties were shut down for having music playing at too high of a volume and I witnessed a lot of people, mostly females, arrested for being drunk in public.

I don't think innocent people need to be harassed and kidnapped for drinking and I don't think residents need to be cited for playing loud music, especially before midnight. I suggested in another article that a sobriety tent may be a cheaper and safer option for those who become too inebriated. Consider that hiring a few medical personnel and putting up a tent for a few hours is a lot cheaper than paying for all these people to go through the court system taking up valuable time of lawyers, judges, etc..

As far as out of towners getting in, they could be shuttled in by their friends or they could get a taxi or uber/lyft rideshare. The neighborhoods just outside of the restricted parking areas, for example the blocks west of Cannon Green were PACKED with cars.

I wouldn't describe it as "quiet" at all, 10k is still a lot of people and the streets were all pretty packed all the way from El Colegio to the police checkpoints at Trigo, and was especially packed from Trigo to Del Playa. The photo in the article is very deceptive. I wouldn't be surprised if law enforcement artificially downplayed the numbers to portray their efforts as effective. A lot of people had a lot of fun until their party was shut down. But the behavior was pretty good.

What this proves, in part, is that by heavily restricting the residences it makes it difficult for people to bring in their friends to stay on these weekends. Landlords should have the right to restrict the use of their residences, and students should have the right to pay higher rent at other residences which may allow them to have guests on these weekends - it should be up to the landlord and residents whether to have guests and parties, not the cops. When landlords who allow students to have parties and guests show they can command higher rents, then the students are effectively paying the landlord a premium and other landlords can decide if they are able to command the same premium and whether it is worth it for them. Students can also decide if they want to bring guests or 'keep it local'. We don't need people like Jarvis and Cat telling everybody in IV what to do.

Keep in mind this article is biased and written by an IV landlord who wants to keep the costs of upholding their residency restrictions down by putting the cost onto the taxpayer.

"Plus, on Saturday, the crowd had downsized to about 500 people by 9:30 p.m."

I would say probably at least a couple thousand or so around 9:30pm, all the streets were still moderately packed. I don't think it got down to around 500 until around 2:30am.

Hmm I wouldn't call them 'trash'...

"Standard blue mussels are very nutrient-dense, 20 medium sized raw blue mussels provide folate (1/3 of the RDA), good amounts of B-vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, and B12, 108 mg magnesium, 12.6 mg iron, four days’ worth of manganese, 143 micrograms selenium, and 5.1 mg zinc.
