Cheapening Pa.

Here is my spin on privatization of state stores:

First, I am not at all a big-government guy. But I have been to states where private liquor stores exist; I am sure many others have, too.

Most, though not all, are gaudy little stores with signs plastered all over the place along with sale banners, plus risque posters that most parents don't want their little kids to see.

We will have many in the inner city, which will get robbed often, and murder will occur. We have enough cheap-looking convenience stores, unsafe bars and, of course, crime.

State stores seldom get robbed, and though the selection sometimes is bad, it is better than private liquor stores', as you see in New Jersey!
