Should the first lady have forgiven her husband?
YESTERDAY'S QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Would banning alcohol at public events reduce the risk of violence?
Kimberly Roderick / Stockton, CA:
"Yes, I do believe that banning alcohol at public events would reduce the risk of violence. I do not drink alcohol at all, i had a 3 yr. old god-daughter that was killed by a drunk driver the day after her 3rd birthday 3\25\90. I would be very happy if alcohol were to be banned completely. I don't drink at all, and I think I turned out pretty darned good!"
Sonja / Valley Springs, CA:
"People who have had too much to drink tend to do things they wouldnt normaly do while sober. not to mention deaths from drunk drivers."
Zig Zeigler / Valley Springs, CA:
"Yes. Either banned or limited. If a person has to drink booze to enjoy sports, music or whatever then they have a problem. Many public parks have already banned liquor to minumize problems."
Walt / Stockton, CA:
"The effect of alcohol with the brain changes a persons thinging ability. Actions are performed under the infulence that would not take place under normal conditions."
Dave Jones / Orangevale, CA:
"Banning alcohol would reduce the risk of violence and it also would reduce revenues, which would increase the cost of the event!"
Toby Sports / Sacramento, CA:
"The reason that I think this is that people will find a way of getting alcohol at public events anyways. So banning it would do no good."
