Reader: Should we blow up bars to keep drunks off the ski slopes?
Last week, we shared a video of Leo's Smoke Shack in Breckenridge being blown up by ski area and U.S. Forest Service reps shortly after it was featured on Inside Edition. The clip didn't please many of our readers, who questioned whether the action would enhance safety. This post highlights what its author sees as a bigger problem.
OK, so if we are going to blow up smoke shacks to keep stoners off the slopes, isn't it time to start blowing up bars that are putting drunks on the road? Drunks on the road seem to be causing lots of problems. See your local news for more information.
