Another successful Pepsi smuggling

I will smuggle soda into Riverfest because I'm an American.

We went down to see the Riverfest fireworks last night. As I do year after year, I smuggled a soft drink into the fest. I wore pants with big pockets so a Pepsi bottle would fit therein. This is a Really Big Deal because - since the stunning police state expansion of the mid-'90s - bringing beverages to the festival has been a no-no, because they want people to pay inflated prices to vendors there. Bringing in soft drinks used to be allowed. Not anymore.

I've never seen authorities hassle people as much about it as I did last night. We saw them stopping a young woman who tried bringing in a soda from Frisch's Big Boy. A greed-driven, nonsensical rule from over 20 years ago is being enforced with unprecedented gusto.

Is that ridiculous or what?

But nobody bubbled (unlike last year, when a person did a Wright brothers).
