hobbitwoman BS: Banning water from festivals (75* d) RE: BS: Banning water from festivals 28 Mar 04

You're probably right, Rapaire. I can't imagine this particular venue being *that* crowded - even 17,000 people at the KISS concert didn't fill the "lawn seats", which is a very fancy way of saying you get to sit on the ground if you ask me. But that could very well be the reasoning behind that particular rule.

Actually, that rule was put in place after the KISS concert. It was actually a very good thing that blankets were still allowed at that concert, as some people were using them for camoflauge up at the fence rather than stand in the long lines at the restroom facilities. Hmm. Maybe that had something to do with the rule being instated!

D - I don't know how many Americans these days would be willing to "liberate" the water supply - or anything else - at a large gathering. We have been very willing to put up with a lot of things, in the wake of 9/11, that we might not have put up with before. We need to be careful, though, I think, and not give away too many of our rights... has anyone read "The Handmaid's Tale"? Scary. Even scarier, that it was written long before 9/11. Makes you think.
