Del Powell of Sandy Springs writes to the Banner-Herald about an overlooked aspect of why Adams' tee-totaling brainchild went over like a pregnant high jumper:
The new football game-day alcohol-free zone on the University of Georgia's North Campus may be a good idea from some perspective, but having the three giant blow-up playscapes was an irritating disaster. All three had big generators running. All three were as loud as industrial lawn mowers, and completely ruined the normally tranquil atmosphere. [emphasis added]But we've already established that no one was in the Family-Friendly Tailgate Zones, which begs the questions philophers have been asking since time eternal: if a generator runs in a family-friendly tailgate zone and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?
I hate that, besides looking tacky, the university's "front yard" turned into a traveling carny show. Yes, reserve the lawn for families drinking iced tea - no problem. But please, no more roaring engines all morning long.
