We like process. We like public input. So we could wait another few weeks to see what Oak Park’s Board of Health finally recommends in the case of the pooch in the pub.

Then we could opine on just what the full village board should decide once the health board issues its Solomon-like judgment on splitting the pup.

Instead, we will simply pre-judge the entire goofy matter and say, Oak Park should loosen up a good bit and enjoy the fact that in The Beer Shop, it has a popular tavern in downtown that has distinguished itself by allowing well-behaved dogs to hang out with their owners. 

The market has spoken. It likes this concept. Customers who don’t like dogs have plenty of other options for enjoying a beer.
