All that is necessary for Evil to succeed is that Morons do nothing

Well, sports fans, you can't say I didn't warn you about the coming of fascism to Wrigleyville bars, and now, it's about to happen:

Bars and restaurants surrounding Wrigley Field reluctantly agreed today to stop serving alcohol after the 7th inning of potential title-clinching Cubs playoff games...

Local Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) disclosed the compromise after a meeting at John Barleycorn's Restaurant, 3524 N. Clark, that included bar owners and city officials.

"Nobody wants to see restrictions, but this is an experiment. These are special circumstances, special times. We are all concerned about safety for the neighborhood," said Tunney, the owner of Ann Sather's Restaurants and a former liquor license holder himself. Tunney said the unprecedented ban on liquor sales would start "at the end of the 7th inning and last for approximately one hour.
What's that Ben Franklin quote that the lefties are always bandying about, talking about how the Amerikkkan sheeple are allowing Chimpy McBushitler to usher in a new era of fascist repression in America through the Patriot Act or listening in on terrorists' phone calls or "harshing their mellow" somehow? Oh, yeah.

The one silver lining? If the games go into extra innings, the taps get turned back on.  That's a compromise that will likely save some lives.
