Don't Be A Mess In Texas!

We all know that the state of Texas is rather peculiar. Home of W and Tom DeLay as well as gay-for-pay porn star Mark Dalton, how could you imagine otherwise? Every once in a while, however, you get a sense of how bizarre the place is. Today's winner: Texas is now targeting drunks... in bars. A recent sting operation was conducted in 36 bars in a Dallas suburb resulting in 30 arrests for public intoxication.

Drunk people in bars? How could such a thing happen?

A spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission explained that this is a pre-emptive move to combat DUI. I'm curious as to whether Texas adopted Bush's premption strategy or vice versa. Nonetheless, while reducing DUI is a good thing, I'd wager there are better ways to go about it.
