Yes, it was over-the-top, and for that I apologize. As I posted further, I was basing my post on the horrific behavior I witnessed at an Oktoberfest. That was the first, and last, Oktoberfest I attended.
Where I was raised, and where I live now, minors--even those accompanied by their parents--are not allowed in liquor stores or bars. This, plus that particular Oktoberfest, colored, and clouded, my perspective.
Again, I apologize.
