Makes You Wish You Were There:It was ten Cent Beer Night, a promotion held by Major League Baseball’s Cleveland Indians during a game against the Texas Rangers at Cleveland Stadium on Tuesday, June 4, 1974.
The idea behind the promotion was to attract more fans to the game by offering 12 fluid ounce (355 ml) cups of 3.2% beer for just 10 cents each, a substantial discount on the regular price of 65 cents, with a limit of six beers per purchase but with no limit on the number of purchases made during the game.During the game, fans became heavily intoxicated, culminating in a riot in the ninth inning which caused the game to be forfeited due to the crowd’s uncontrollable rowdiness and because the game could not be resumed in a timely manner.

Let’s Make More Laws: A recent shooter, in Australia, on parole, wearing a tracking ankle bracelet, using a type of gun outlawed in the country since 1996, has killed four and wounder another. Boy, if we only had just one more law. And the one thing this shooter had in common with recent US mass shooters? Multiple interactions with police just prior to the shootings. Hummm. Maybe a law against that would work.
