I love irony, and this story should be become the classic case study of it.
Fun times still call for responsibility, and Florida has a handle on that. Even with all the spring break fiascoes, MTV specials and overconsumption, the state is strict when it came to glass bottles on the beaches. I've seen a Panama City Beach police office deliberately pass by some hard-partying minors to cite one older man for drinking from a bottle.
Now, some county officials are debating the use of recycled glass to bring back that sparkle and make up for lost sand volume.
