Don't say you weren't warned. Mike Adams, the most severe irritant in Athens since fire ants, further antagonizes the public with a power grab that could only end with him planning your tailgate menu by 2008. (Don't worry, Adams probably won't steal your alcohol, but only because he soaks the State of Georgia for his)

Under the subterfuge of controlling fan behavior, The Beloved Leader has issued a fiat outlawing parking on sidewalks on gameday. What does parking on sidewalks have to do with preventing overserved football fans? How much alcohol is really being consumed on campus prior 7:00AM?
As I've speculated previously, this has nothing to do with curbing alcohol consumption. Fan misbehavior is a stalking horse for implementing tailgating changes that Adams has always wanted. His sycophantic lapdog Jimmy "Clancy Wiggum" Williamson is only so happy to carry water for Adams in this regard.
What can be done? In all reality, not much. Until Adams' annuity matures (I believe in 2007), we're stuck with this metaphorical canker sore.
