The city council’s idea of requiring video cameras at bars to battle drunk driving isn’t bad, but doesn’t do much to prevent tragedies.

It’s a small step, but it’s also a side step around a broader, more painful truth that becomes more painfully obvious each fall.

Absolutely correct Laura, we’ve created a culture of “ Anything Goes in Galveston”. It’s time to protect our home and it’s residents by creating a culture of safety and respect.

Wasn’t Splash Days cancelled because it became a too boozy event? And Kappa weekend? Wasn’t it cancelled because it became larger than the organizers could control? The Golden Goose sometimes lays a Godzilla egg.
