Re College Voting, Example I

From a reader:

For years the small town of Murray, Kentucky had been a dry county. The college students were not allowed to vote unless they purchased a city-sticker. A few years ago they were granted the vote. Now the county is wet and the students can graduate and leave without worring about the increased crime rate. I, personally, am not opposed to the county becoming wet. I just believe that those with a long-term stake in the county should make the decision and not those that will leave shortly. It had no chance of becoming wet without the college vote.
