A Little Bit of History Repeating

EL PASO – Four men were killed in a shooting at the OK Corral nightclub in Juárez early Monday, police said.

The men, wearing Western-style clothing and cowboy boots, were shot shortly after midnight inside the club located on Independencia boulevard and Puerto de Palos street in southeastern Juárez, Chihuahua state police said.

Three of the men died in the club and the fourth victim died at a hospital, police said. Two of the men appeared to be employees of the nightclub because they were wearing shirts with the name of the club. The names of the dead was not immediately available. Investigators found 14 bullet casings at the scene.

The Jack Thompson of Ladies Night Loses Again

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s closing time for a lawsuit alleging ladies’ nights at nightclubs discriminate against men.

Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum tossed the lawsuit out of federal court in Manhattan on Monday. She said nightclubs can price their products as they wish because they’re not acting as representatives of the state.

The lawsuit was brought by attorney Roy Den Hollander, who has crusaded against feminism and recently sued a university over its women’s studies program.

Hollander said ladies’ nights at Manhattan nightclubs discriminate against men by offering women free or discounted admission and drinks. He tried to link the state to the discounts because it licenses the sale of alcohol at nightclubs.

He called the judge a feminist and said her dismissal of his lawsuit was consistent with the discrimination embedded in many of America’s institutions.

I seem to remember when this first happened.   Good to see some sanity push back against the nutter.
