IE: Cindy Bass, Philadelpha City Councilwoman
« on: December 05, 2017, 04:55:17 AM »
Article: "Barrier windows in Philly beer delis: Symbols of safety or distrust?"

From the article, "[Cindy Bass] has proposed legislation that would force beer deli owners to remove thick plexiglass counter windows," claiming that 1) said windows are a symbol of distrust (suggesting the clientele is dangerous) and 2) too many of these establishments are merely "masquerading" as delis when their main source of income is alcohol.

I mean, I like to joke that politics makes people stupid, but my goodness -- it took me about two seconds to see the flaws in Bass's logic.
Failing to clean up my own mistakes since the early 80s.

I don't go to bars and I can come up with a more mundane guess: you don't want the patrons to smash windows too easily...
