Arresting drunk people in bars (follow-up)

A recent post of mine dealt with how the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission has decided to arrest people for public intoxication -- while they're still in the bar. If you've been following this, you've read that they have stated that they have no intention of discontinuing this practice, claiming that it prevents drunk driving and saves lives.

Well, it looks like they finally gave in, but it's only a temporary suspension. And, by the merest coincidence, it's right before the Texas legislature decided to look into the matter.
