Town ponders banning swearing in bars:
A St. Louis-area town is considering a bill that would ban swearing in bars, along with table-dancing, drinking contests and profane music. City officials contend the bill is needed to keep rowdy crowds under control because the historic downtown area gets a little too lively on some nights.
City Councilman Richard Veit says he was prompted to propose the bill after complaints about bad bar behaviour.
I’m wondering if there mightn’t be another problem – a “root cause”. I’ve heard rumors of mood-altering drug. It comes in liquid form, and is usually found in bottles or glasses.
No confirmation on this rumor, yet…
