Allowing bars to reopen starting today seems both long overdue and, by this point, largely symbolic. State regulators have been blessing bars to reopen for months already.

Most places in Brazoria County that people would patronize for an adult beverage have been operating under revised permits issued by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission classifying them as restaurants or had those permits already. Those drink licenses specify a business must derive more than half of its revenue from food, a threshold a remarkable number of bars managed to achieve during the lockdown orders that they didn’t before.

Yes, let's open the bars because there is nothing more important than hanging around with a bunch of drunks. And, before you think it ... for the person who drinks, there has NEVER been a time when at some point you drank too much.
