Lubbock Has Been Wet For Ten Years
Man, that headline is suggestive, isn't it?
The RockShow's Heathen bought the very first legal beer inside city limits. Since then, not much has changed in the Hub City, meaning the hellfire that the preachers said was going to be called down upon us didn't happen. You can even get booze at Tech games now and I haven't heard a peep from the people who said it would be our downfall.
Lubbock didn't turn into Sodom & Gomorrah when the town went wet. It's not rampant drunkenness and orgies in the streets. Satan has stayed in his corner and let us have this one almost incident free. Nope, this didn't bring about the ruin of Lubbock and neither did revoking blue laws or watching Harry Potter movies.
It's all a great reminder that things are never as bad or as good as they seem. Soon, we'll have to make decisions on pot or maybe gambling or even a nudie bar inside city limits. History has shown us time and time that getting really worked up about this stuff is nonsense. Legalize it, regulate it, and tax it and everybody wins.
