Re: “"The Rest of the Story"

Alias--read the article and the gentleman from New York has a valid point. However, let me quote one sentence that goes to the entire heart of the matter. "If the laws were truly fair, we independent retailers will have our own advantages". If that were true in Tennessee, many wine and liquor retailers might feel the same way, but the laws they are talking about passing are all in favor of the grocery stores and big box stores. Of course the law breakers are going to be magnanimous and allow the liquor retailers to sell (ice,openers,glasses and limited mixes), whoop de do. They give up thousands in sales for pennies. I belabor the point, the laws they are about to change won't be fair and that is why retailers are against it.

Re: “"The Rest of the Story"

AliasElias, sorry to hear about your living conditions, but I am sure Obama will bail you out soon, since you seem to have liberal leanings. And after reading some of your other post in the morning publication, I have a suggestion for you. Before you spout your beliefs make sure you have your facts correct. Like the old saying goes, "Its better to be thought of as a fool, than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt". Any way, I hope that in the future you are able to find a meaningful job and a decent place to live and can afford at least some box wines.

Re: “"The Rest of the Story"

AliasElias, evidently you have never shopped at Mr. Hammond's establishment since you don't know that they do not sell what is called "bum wines" Thunderbird and Mad Dog. However I am glad that they sell smaller sizes of the different product that they do sell, since quite frequently I and I am sure lots of customers don't really need to purchase the larger sizes. It's call a convience to their customers to handle all available sizes. You really should get out more, but maybe you do since you seem to know more about cheep wines that you know about the good stuff.
