It's that time of year again, when the college kids in my town decide to get stupid and have a little block party that attracts thousands. Last year, it turned into a riot, and the college kids are looking forward to starting their drinking as early as 7am and drinking all day.
Now, may I ask, WHY get that stupid? WHY drink that much? Why get into a fight with the cops, and risk your future for drinking too damn much? Why risk alienating yourselves further from townies like myself who are really tired of this crap, tired of the annual idiocy that comes from college kids, and why people like me wish for Martial Law in my home town when the university is in session.
Me, I always side with the cops and not the kids, because I know most of the university cops and they are good friends of me. I hate annual drinking parties, all they do is give people a right to get stupid. To me, it's damn wrong. It's not appropriate and all it does is alienate the college kids worse with the townies like myself.
My town has had a history of riots, starting in 1970 with one bad one known as May 4th. I hate idiocy. Sure I drink but at least I am responsible about it because I hate stupidity and I know my limits with booze.
