#1 Another way to put it, heavy drinkers move nearer to bars (and thus avoid DUIs).
Effect/cause, cause/effect, what's the difference when you've got a narrative to form to justify a study that nobody should have paid a dime for in the first place.

#2 Perhaps bars are being built in areas known to have heavy drinkers? Such as near colleges.

#4 I love New Orleans.... only place where you can politely ask a cop to hold your beer while you tie your shoes. But yeah, there's something to the argument. I love New Orleans, yeah it's 9 am on Sunday, is there a 2 for one?

#5 We have bars here that don't even have DOORS! Even open while the city was flooded by Katrina.

#6 What's really weird is after a week or two it seems perfectly normal for folks to drop by the daquiri bar at 11 am.
I mean hell if everyone's a drunk no ones a drunk, there's an ancient reality-distortion field around Orleans Parish.
Mother's is the only sane place.

#7 The Boston Globe reports that the chances a person will drink too much jumped to 17 percent living near a bar.
Yeah, they're real sharp over at the Globe...
