Nanny State Wants Us To Go Thirsty

The South Coast Water District is considering an ordinance that, among other things, would prevent restaurants from bringing water to customers who haven't requested it. The law is intended to stymie water shortages or something, but screw that. My pet peeve: Restaurants cheaping you out on water and forgetting you asked for it. This will just add one more needless step in the journey to quench thirst after nachos. Shame on you, Water District, for trying to prevent a catastrophic drought.
