Not at 2:55 AM, I wouldn't. Get some sleep, Bill.
...though I have "told MADD off" as you phrase it. When they've sponsored 'benefits' which serve considerable amounts of alcoholic beverages MADD requested from and was donated by the very profit mongers you abhor and castigate.
I don't drink - but that's my choice, not yours. Do you and MADD drive only on ONE WAY streets?
Perhaps there will be room to put your money where your mouth is if your foot is put back on the ground.
That having been said, there is absolutely no doubt where you stand, which is a commendable thing, whether or not I agree with you. Thank you.
On How the West Beach Fest Was Won

Thank God, Bill Clausen has joined in the fray. As for the bratty-booze-contingent, or the BBC as I prefer to call them, couldn't we parallel Arizona and enforce some of the laws that are already on the books?
Since it must be a fact that "everywhere you look now, it's all about bars and people getting wasted...mob rule, $$$, and hormones win the day...", there are laws already on the books that allow us to stop these brats, check their IDs, get breath/blood/urine tests and take them off the streets permanently.
The band "Soul Survivor" notwithstanding, "what profitith a man if he gain the world and lose his soul"...what price is the city willing to be blackmailed for these souls?
Thanks, once again, Bill, for being the monolith of reason.

Mr. Clausen, your comments, please, on this distasteful view of our animal instincts...

Thank God for Bill Clausen. Doesn't anyone else have his courage?
"As [for] the charity aspect of it, if these people want to give money to charity, there are many other venues. As for the booze industry's profits, they have to abide by the rules like the rest of us do...Yep, the wine culture is realizing it's not all about them and that public safety mitigates their insatiable urge to inflict their lifestyle on the rest of us...Don't forget: these people are drinking and driving."
And that's a fact. Isn't it?
It would certainly be better if he'd inflict his lifestyle on the rest of us...at least he's right. Isn't he?

I saw on their website that they had special tickets for designated drivers and buses from SB. Would Fiolek let me try to taste everything then?

This is America...everyone is ENTITLED to do whatever the $%!@ they want, right? Whenever, wherever.
On the other hand, in "Marat-Sade" the inmates were in charge of the asymlum...
Thanks for writing this piece.
On Middle-Aged Concert-Goers Behaving Badly

Finally! Some enlightened sense. And, intelligent. They could all see how degrading the affordable housing plan was to those who could afford it. Imagine, putting it next to El Rancho Market!?! At least intelligence ruled supreme, and they got THAT out of the Valley Plan, out of respect to the less fortunate. Well done!
On Santa Ynez Plan Gets Okay

Right on! Although I am a bit surprised that you did even finish reading this article, as it appears that the author was one of the boozehounds! Why do you support such potomania? I suppose judges need to know what the helots are doing. In any event, keep up the good work, I see by your other comments that you would both be great on a city council or board of supervisors, keeping other people in line! Thank you for your incessant effort...

Nicely stated, tlacuache. You bring up some good points. And to your advantage, when you take your garbage and dump it in the middle of lower State Street (exactly where i'd dump it, too), there should be an extra tax assesed on the producers of everything in your garbage.
Because the garbage must be held accountable, not you.
