Where our priorities lie...

What does this say about our society? Banning BYOB at the Preakness has achieved what Eight Belles's death couldn't: a steep reduction in attendance.

At Troubled Preakness, a Sobering Attendance Drop

Yep, the Preakness Stakes decided this year for the first time to restrict people from bringing alcohol to the race. And as it happens, the booze was more important to many fans than the horses.

Sad, really. But hey, however the job gets done is fine with me... If it takes liquor control to bring about horse racing reform, I'm down with that!
