Re “Not the O.K. Corral” (Police blotter, Nov. 30):
Can someone pinch me? Smashing someone over the head with a cast-iron table causing the victim to bleed “profusely” is a routine, commonplace event, according to David McWater, the owner of Doc Holliday’s bar. I am amazed at his casual acceptance of such violence! Isn’t there a conflict of interest when a man is leader of a community board and owner of 11 local bars?
It is clear we need term limits at community board level along with voting and all community board meetings should be televised as well but democracy "seems" to be to expensive and we can only hope for some celebrity calamity to bring attention to issues that need addressing.
