How many years ago now did they get their permit? Let it go, lady.

And again with the tired "family environment" nonsense. I can't think of any family gathering in my entire life that didn't at least have a bottle of wine around. What families do these people belong to?

I can't understand how anyone can pull the "family park" card when they sell alcohol at Disney parks. Doesn't that trump their card?

This is not an article written by a reporter. This is an opinion blog, where anyone with an internet connection can post their opinions. I'm amazed you found this.

Just makes me glad that I am not living in Texas as if you are reading the comment section in this "article", it somehow turns into a comparison of gays at Disneyland vs. beer at Six Flags discussion.

It really does not make Texas look good at all..

To be honest, Texas does a good enough job of making Texas look bad.

I live in Texas and I think it's bad. Then again, I was born and raised in the Northeast, so maybe I don't count.

I lived there for 6 months, and that was enough for me.

Like the location matters. The internet is overrun with idiots. Isn't that what is ultimately going on here?

Not really, because many Texans talk like that in public. It's unclear if this idiocy is caused by being Texan or being on the internet (or both).

I bet where I live, the poorest county in West Virginia, is 10 times worse than anywhere in Texas. :p People run off the "black people" and the "gays", and the only music that is played in the stores is country. It seems that people who don't own a truck get looked down upon, and nearly everyone has a tractor and a "4-wheeler" ATV. You can pick out the smart people around here by the way they talk. And don't dare dream of finding a decent hairstylist.

And you think the drug problem in inner cities is bad? I can't take a drive to the grocery store without passing drug dealers standing outside, waiting for buyers.

Every election we have, there is cheating and vote stealing. The Feds may have to come again to get our local government straightened out, because it's happening right now. My county is getting our first McDonald's in a few months, and we still don't have a Walmart or anything else.

And somehow, as different as I am from them, I have been accepted as one of them.

Thanks for reading. It felt good to get that off of my chest, even if it was off the topic of amusement parks and roller coasters.

Hold up! Actually, the poorest county in WV is McDowell. In fact, it ranks #28 in the nation for poorest. And I know this because I used to work at the Welfare Office there ;).

Otherwise everything you stated is true, and sadly the drugs and lack of education are terrible in southern WV. As for racism, well, surprisingly whilst McDowell County is surrounded by backwoods yokels who hate anything other than the 'color' white, McDowell County has (as of 2005) the highest population of African American/Black people in the state, so that one I can't say much about.

Having said that, even people in WV know there isn't anything wrong with Beer at Six Flags. Or Myrtle Beach. Or a Disney Park ;).

Yeah, I just looked that up. We are the seventh or ninth poorest county in the state (out of 55 counties), depending on how you look at it. I know that we are a "something-est". lol

A lot of people here don't even think that there is anything wrong with drinking beer 24/7, even when working or driving.

Everything about this place does make it easy to be a big fish in a small pond though. ;)

All it took was a google news search under "six flags" and it popped up.

I think it makes a big difference. If a DMN paid reporter was bringing this issue up again I would be a lot more aggravated. Opinion blogs are everywhere, and any idiot can post whatever they want. To me there is significantly less credence to a blog as opposed to an actual news story. I'm glad the newspapers have finally given this a rest. It's unfortunate that Google picked this up as a news item just because the blog is on a newspaper site.

As to the rest of the ultra-conservative closed-minded idiots in Texas, there's not much we can do about that. They will continue to make noise, and we just have to learn to live with it. They will always be an embarrassment.

My partner teaches art to K-6 in Arlington. One of his students said her parent told her she can't go to Six Flags. "It's a bad place...they do drugs and drink beer there."

My point was that no one was pushing off the thing as journalism.

Given the title of this topic, it appears to have fooled Chitown. :)

Well that'll teach me to not read the titles I guess. :) I just click the little blue "new post!" icons.

This seems to be an internet thing. I'm sure that some of you follow parks on Facebook. Have you ever read the comments there?

It's painful.

The news stories here in Kansas City attract comments that are approaching the absurdity of Facebook.
