How many legislators want to keep their constituents from enjoying a beer on the 4th of July? That, dear friends, is downright un-American.
Alternatively, we could close down the liquor stores and set up a speed trap on I94 just before the St. Croix river bridge. We'd have enough citations to balance the budget on the backs of problem drinkers like me within the day.
Seriously, though, the liquor stores'll stay open, right? Right!? There's no provision for inspections or license renewal that's going to fall through the cracks?
