Sobering up: Behind Madison's harder line on downtown booze - Some comments of note on the controversial Cap Times article:

"A simple and easy reduction of many alcohol related problems could be realized by eliminating the ridiculous and entirely arbitrary bar time."

"While drinkers are out getting into bar fights ... the pot smoker is at home in their living room looking for their other shoe. Policy implications?"

"For students, there is almost nothing to do downtown that does not involve drinking ... UW square (with movie theaters) closed ... Union South will close soon with the bowling alley ... music venues are not cheap and so it's drink, drink, drink"

"I own many student rental houses- they are basically underground bars without any regulation. The less liquor lic. you give out, the more underground bars you will have."
