Re: “Get state out of liquor sales” (editorial, 10-17).
I have a dog in this fight, actually a pack. I have been a liquor store clerk since 1998. Everyone is addressing underage sales. No one is bringing up theft.
Liquor is a drug. It is stolen, sold and bartered as such. Is the clerk at your corner store going to gently confront everyone and ask for ID when groups of four and six come through the door? Will he/she ask for the bottle back that just went down the front of the pants, in the purse, into the pocket?
Half pint heaven is coming. How lucky are we?
