Old enough for privatization

Having just traveled to Houston and Charlotte, I am painfully reminded of how immature we Pennsylvanians appear to those in other states, especially when it comes to how we buy beer and wine.

Hello, Harrisburg! We are old enough to buy beer and wine at our grocery stores, like they do in Texas and North Carolina. And some here sometimes pejoratively refer to the Southern states as “backward.” People there laugh at us.

Now I read that state Sen. Charles McIlhinney, R-Bucks County, is drafting a bill that the Trib labeled a “hybrid” approach (“Senator offers hybrid liquor control plan,” Feb. 12 and TribLIVE.com). That is a joke.

Just get rid of the state-run stores altogether. Grow up! Oh, wait — we can't buy a car on Sunday, either. Maybe next, Harrisburg will think it is a good “hybrid” idea to have the state take over the sale of automobiles.

That would be priceless.
