that's the best you can do? seriously?

Our town, seen through Lubbock eyes.

So when Lubbockian cultural conservatives close their eyes and imagine the horrifying decadence of their city after the May 9 referendum to allow alcohol sales in their city passes, what monstrous atrocity, what Den of Sin do they imagine? Las Vegas, Nevada? Bangkok, Thailand? Amsterdam?


In the latest Texas Monthly (the one with Joel Osteen on the cover, but that's another story), Brant O'Hair, spokesperson for Truth About Alcohol Sales says that

underage drinking [is] his main concern. "A combination of that and our not wanting to see our town become more like Amarillo."
Wow. Our city must be a lot more fun than I ever thought.
