In what will undoubtedly go down in history as the stupidest and most dangerous move by the D.C. City Council, bars in the nation’s capital will extend "last call" from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. during the Obama inauguration.

Why now? Why for this president-elect? Likely the dollar signs in the eyes of owners of local watering holes have pushed the lawmakers over the edge into this area of irresponsibility. The likelihood of alcohol-related injuries and deaths will skyrocket, arrests for public drunkenness and disorderliness will increase, and the potential for tragedy to mar Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaFeehery: Betting on Trump Pew study finds Americans can’t tell fact from opinion Should President Trump, like President Obama, forsake human rights in pursuit of the deal with a tyrant? MORE's celebration will be heightened.

One person losing his or her life due to this greedy excess will be one too many, and will mar the historic event. One alcohol-related death is one too many. Having lost my only sister to a drunk driver, I can attest to that fact. President Bush, President-elect Obama, Congress, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and other concerned groups should smack down this ill-fated idea.

Meanwhile, I will not be going out at night that week — not because I am a Republican, but because the City Council's vote to keep the bars open until 5 a.m. for several days surrounding the Obama inauguration makes my city just too damn dangerous.
