    Great free publicity for Brewvies. Who had ever heard of them before this "controversy"?

    This is just a way to get free publicity. The owner of this business knows this because they were cited for showing the Hangover Part 2 in the last couple of years. Sales must really be down. Whether the law changes or not by whatever method is a completely different matter. just realize the we as the public are getting played. This includes Rocky who is a notorious publicity seeker himself.

    So the Obscenity law doesnt focus on what is shown in the movie as much as you cant serve alcohol while watching it?

    Why did the State give them a liquor license then? Just control the liquor through licensing not Obscenity.

    "The proper channel for changing state law is through the legislative process."
    That is *a* proper channel, yes. Another equally proper channel is the courts. That is how people persecuted with an unjust law may seek relief.

    There are a lot of people in America that were seriously let down by their civics teachers.

    Hey...this is the law of the land! You can't change laws of the land! Laws of the land must be obeyed!

    There is no reason as to why adults can't have a beverage, while seeing some simulated sex. This is such a worthless law, seeing as kids aren't even involved in this situation, nobody can use that as an argument.

    The law is flawed and should be changed.

    Unless of course, the legislature and the public disagree on the constitutionality of a law, then of course the judiciary can overturn a law. Considering similar laws have already been overturned for limiting free speech, i'm sure the legislature will act and not waste taxpayer money fighting another unwinnable lawsuit...
