    I find it interesting that Lavender only reported on crimes related to The Saloon and not all gay bars or all other local bars of similar size. I don’t want to make assumptions, but one has to conclude that this was only done as a jab at The Saloon’s expense because they (The Saloon) stopped carrying Lavender last year. This just seems petty and childish on Lavender’s behalf.

    How does the Saloon compare to other gay bars and other straight bars for which similar data has been released?
