Is Liquor Privatization Coming In 2014?


Well, it’s failed every other year its been up for debate, so my gut says no–that in 2014 we’re still going to be dealing with the same bizarre, antiquated, state-run system that we’ve all come to know and loathe. But still, apparently there’s some doings afoot in the halls of power, and a nice, fat shortfall in the state budget might make this year a different story.

Don’t believe it? Head on over to the Philly mag main page and see what the politics-watchers have to say on the subject. In the meantime, I’m just gonna sit over here and drink my state-approved whiskey and dream about a day when I can go and buy a bottle of John Powers Irish at the 7-11 like a normal human being.
