Hopefully the next and last post about this issue will report that the liquor license to All Souls Bar was denied. It seems like such a no-brainer to me but maybe I’m just out of touch. I’m pleased to report that the mainstream press has picked up on the story. Here’s a video from ABC-7 News.
Below are the comments that viewers posted on the ABC 7 News site all of which are in favor of the bar being granted a license.
Comment Posted by Akeem People of DC are stupid. Most of these kids know what alcohol is. Hell, most of their parents drinks excessively around them, esp the broun-skinned (sp)/dark hair people. If alcohol is that much of a problem, and it certainly is (my opinion) than ban it from the city all together.

The question is, will the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration side with the above posters or will they side with the concerned parents of Cleveland Elementary? You can show your support by joining the community at the hearing this Wednesday.
