Della goes Balls Deep
Apparently all of Baltimore City’s problems have been solved. Why else would State Senator George Della of Baltimore City introduce legislation aimed at beer pong in the city?
Don’t believe me? Here’s some verbiage directly from the text of the legislation:
(B) A HOLDER OF A RETAIL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES LICENSE OR
OWNER OR OPERATOR OF A BOTTLE CLUB MAY NOT PROMOTE, ENCOURAGE, OR ALLOW ON THE PREMISES A GAME COMMONLY KNOWN AS BEER PONG OR ANY OTHER GAME OR CONTEST THAT INVOLVES DRINKING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR THE AWARDING OF DRINKS OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AS PRIZES.
Really? Is this really necessary? Do we really need to impugn on the freedom of Baltimore City residents, businesses, and bar patrons by micromanaging the lives of its citizenry like this? Does this really need to be a state issue?
Oh…..and did the homicides, rampant drug used, urban decay, and ghastly public schools in Baltimore City suddenly get fixed over night? Because otherwise, Senator Della is seriously asleep at the switch.
There is no other way to say this: Senator Della needs to loosen up, get a life, and focus on the legitimate problems that Baltimore City has. And I assure you the beer pong is far, far, FAR from the list of priorities facing the city. And you never know; if this Carrie Nation act keeps up, maybe another team of rivals will form to bring some common sense to the situation…
