Here’s another one of those news stories where the headline is meant more to get people fired up than to summarize what the story is about.
Authorities are discussing the possibility of permanently banning alcohol along the river every day of the year.
And yet I’ve watched the video and read the article and I am not sure I know that “authorities” are really discussing banning alcohol along the river.
“I don’t know that we’ve reached the point where we have to ruin it for everyone” Sacramento County Supervisor Phil Serna said. “It would require a joint effort between the state of California – who governs the actual water – and the adjacent acreage is under the oversight of the county.”
At any rate, I get it, it’s a law enforcement nightmare to have to keep the drunken yahoos in check.
I wonder if this dude knew his interview would be used heavily in the piece.
“It’s not that bad, it’s just fights” rafter Will Schulze said. “We’re adults. If we want to drink on the river, we should drink on the river.”
Oh, boy, time cue up the Colonel Jessep scene from A Few Good Men.
