I really think liquor laws in this country are nuts. Some places let you
buy in bars and taverns but not at the local 7-11 and some places forbid
sales after 9 P.M. for booze but beer and wine is OK.

Why is it OK to have a drink at 6:00 A.M. but not at 3:00 A.M.?

Wet counties, dry counties, all of this is stupid.


The prime purpose of these laws is to show that Something Is Being Done
About The Problem.


Also. to protect and enrich the liquor distributors.
