Letters: Business owners should have some say in business

May 1, 2013 

Arlene Flowers, or any other business, has the right to refuse service to anyone they choose for whatever reason -- restaurants and bars have done it for years. No shoes, no shirt, no service. If they think you are drinking too much, you're cut off.

If this is offensive to anyone, they have the choice to go to another business. Don't be forcing your belief on others. My freedom is important, too.
