Nice Reason TV piece here about Virginia Governor Bob McDonald's plans to ditch VA's state-run liquor store monopoly (H/T: Blogfaddah):
Dig that bottle of Tito's at stage--er, screen right. Nice job.
Having grown up in Alabama, where independent liquor stores are legal, but by law much more expensive than the crappy state stores, I can but applaud this noble effort. And don't get me started on the situation up in my wife's home state of Pennsylvania. I thought we had weird liquor laws down South--but then I married into the Keystone State, where y'all are just plain messed up. And not in a good way.
