Article (Bowl Threat Revealed) from Thursday's (2/7) Arizona Republic about a super bowl threat plot states that the person planned the attack because he was upset that his request for a liquor license was denied. It was reported that the application was recommended for denial because an entry on the applicant's blog listed the name of his intended business (Drunkenstein's) differently from what was listed (The Haunted Castle) on the license application. The article is already archived on the Republic's website (need to purchase at this point to see it). This raised some questions for me that may be more about the reporting than anything else. Was the blog entry posted by him or someone else? How did the the blog come to the attention of the Tempe City Council? The Tempe City Council really used a blog post as part of their deliberations and decision making process?
