Philadelphia Weekly gets on the PLCB Abolishment bus

The cover feature of the new issue of Philadelphia Weekly is "PA's Disgraceful Liquor Laws," a nicely-done exposition on what's wrong with the Almighty Liquor Code and the Board That Time Forgot. My PLCB blog gets some exposure, and I get my usual turn with the loonies in the comments (Ted Winters? Who the hell is Ted Winters?), but the important thing is that more people get a full dose of just what's wrong about the PLCB: everything.

Oooh, the LCBee is not going to like that, and may fly down to philly from the farm show...

The Gov says PA needs table games to generate tax $$, whatever happened to selling the state stores?

This fine article touches on something I've thought about for a while. Depressingly, while most people want the system to change I doubt a single lawmaker will ever fail to get re-elected based on this issue. And as long as that's the case what's the motivation to actually change the current setup. I wish Stan Sheetz well and I've signed his petition but I bet it won't work. I'll be very happy to be wrong.
