Well the big story in Baton Rouge today is the ordinance which will be voted on later today by the Parish Council.

The Reveille had heavy coverage on the issue today:

-Metro Council to vote on CCCC ban

-Last call for us all

-They cannot take our freedom!

-Drink special ban will solve nothing

-Ordinance fails to address problem

Basically they are trying to put a ban on drink specials at drinking establishments after 8 p.m. This is an attempt to curtail student drinking which will SURELY fail. Bars aren't the only places to get drunk obviously- just the most popular. If the ordinance does have an effect on drinking in bars it will only be because students are now at house parties and other non-contained environments. Ending binge-drinking is certainly an important priority but the way the CCCC is trying to end binge-drinking will not solve the issue.
