Do you all know there's a proposal to keep bars open til 4 am in Denver? Think about the ramifications of that... Try and find some sort of way to make that seem like a good idea. You can't. Selling booze for another 2 hours is going to lead to all kinds of problems, more drunk drivers is just the beginning. Why isn't anyone talking about that??
