School board member Sara Lewis responded, saying, “There are people who think if you walk within 500 yards of a liquor store you’re going to die and be damned to all eternity,” which, for all its lush medieval imagery, doesn’t quite explain why a freewheeling devil worshiper can’t cop a bottle of Night Train on Sunday morning in America.
