State Senator Rails Against that “Damn Sheetz” in Liquor Hearing

Sheetz, that backwatery, red-headed stepchild of a convenience store, is lobbying for liquor privatization so that it can sell beer. Boosters say it will create jobs. Some pro-PLCB Democrats, not surprisingly, dispute this.

“The notion that you’re gonna kill all these family sustaining jobs and that somehow people are gonna go out and work for minimum wage at a damn Sheetz, I think, is outrageous,” [Sen. Jim] Ferlo said.

Senator Ferlo, we don’t know you, but we like you. As long you’re cool with beer and low-wage jobs at Wawa, that is. [ABC 27]

    I love Sheetz. Now I love them even more.

  • Good God, you’re from DC and you’ve already got the Philly “everything west of ChesCo sucks” attitude? Get the hell over yourself, Sheetz is cool, and Ferlo’s a bellowing dinosaur. Sort it out.

    “Pro-PLCB Democrat” is redundant, BTW, and that’s a lot of what’s wrong with the state’s Democrats. “Pro-PLCB Bucks County Republicans” is a lot of what’s wrong with the state’s Republicans, though, so that’s fair.
