Well, here we go again! Yet another alcohol distributor is desiring to sell in downtown Huntington Beach ("7-Eleven seeks alcohol license," June 7). Your article quotes John Tillotson as stating that he "wouldn't deny you the right to have a drink if you go to a restaurant or another establishment that sells beer and wine."
I certainly wouldn't deny anyone that right either. However, apparently what Tillotson fails to realize is the fact that going to a restaurant and consuming alcohol is not the same as buying alcohol in a 7-Eleven and then proceeding to drink it in a vehicle parked in front of my home while partying loudly with the radio blasting and then proceeding to urinate, vomit and throw the empty containers in my shrubs.
The CVS down the street from my house on Pacific Coast Highway already provides my neighborhood with plenty of this kind of action. Is this what our enlightened City Council is referring to when they say that the downtown area is "very vibrant"?
