Another fantastic idea where things can't possibly go wrong ...

Combine a southern state, a population stereotyped (disturbingly accurately) as gun nuts, and a Republican state Governor, and you've got yourself one hell of a stupid situation. Add alcohol into the mix, and now you've just got a ticking timebomb, as is what's developing in Arizona. The state has just legalized carrying (concealed) weapons in bars and other establishments that hand out alcohol.

What a fantastic idea.

The bill was signed into law by the Governor who perhaps has the most situational-ironic name of all time, Janice Kay Drinkwine Brewer, and is backed by, of course, the National Rifle Organisation. (Jan Brewer is also a member of the NRO. My, nuts of a feather ...)

One little bit of good sense, however, allows for bar and restaurant owners who seek to ban guns in their establishments to post "No Guns" signs at their main entrance doors. But in all the other places, a delicate combination of guns, gun nuts, and booze ...

Again, what a great idea.
