I wonder whether Jack Daniels and Jim Beam, et al., might also be opposed to having grocery stores sell wine.


I would hope that if they allow wine sales, they'd allow liquor sales too.

"No doubt the liquor stores would face competition, but if they can't provide the value to consumers that grocery stores can, why, then, should they be propped up?"

It never was about providing value. This is a holdover from prohibition-era attitudes about alcohol. But it's another reminder that regulations, once established for any reason, are hard to get rid of for just one reason.


Agreed. My question was rhetorical (but you answered it well).
