Reader Adam asked us for a shout-out to an online petition, Save the Parties. Here you go, Adam.
I’m not sure he’s barking up the correct tree, here. The petition asks Mayor Fenty to “stand strong” but Fenty liked the original measure which exempted nightclubs from the measure. The people who need to be told to sit down, shut up, and mind the business of their own areas are Senator Feinstein – who never met a nanny-state measure she didn’t like – and Senator Bennett, both on the Inaugural committee.
Or, for that matter, any other congresscritter who think that it’s their place to meddle in DC’s business. There’s certainly a case to be made for their being interested in the things that impact doing the nation’s business, but how late someone can get a beer? Leave the rules of actually making a home here to the locals.
