Re: “Another View: 'Don't Big-Box Wine!'

Seriously, you folks who think letting the big-box retailers sell wine will save you money are dreaming. I've bought wine in grocery stores in California; the only difference between here and there was the taxes.

Re: “Another View: 'Don't Big-Box Wine!'

So this bill only accomodates wine, not liquor? What's up with that? I like a SoCo on the Rocks before dinner... It sure would be convenient if I could pick that up at Wal-Mart too.

Re: “Quit W(h)ining

I, too, want to see the actual wording of the bill before I support it. Will it actually level the playing field or give the big-box stores an advantage? Will liquor stores be allowed to sell more than just liquor, which they can't do now? Will grocery stores that sell wine be limited by proximity to schools and churches, as liquor stores are now? Will grocery stores be limited to the same list of wine vendors as liquor stores are now? Still too many questions left hanging...

Re: “The Rant

The point is that Michael Phelps was participating in an activity that -- despite your opinion -- is still illegal. If he had been photographed robbing a bank, would you excuse that behavior too? Because, as we in Memphis are all too aware, "everybody's doing it!"
