Stop pub riots: choose plastic

Can plastic pint glasses reduce fights in British pubs? Not likely. But Coors is offering the inelegant vessels to owners of violence-prone establishments in an effort to minimize, if not brawls, presumably the slashing injuries caused by brawls. "Senior police chiefs have welcomed the innovation, but have said that more must be done to tackle pub crime." Very vague, that "more" is it not? But I give credit to Coors. Aesthetically displeasing as their idea is, at least they're doing something. That evidently can't be said of British social leaders.
