Modernizing liquor laws

Glen Warchol has come up with the perfect argument to convice Utah conservatives to go along with Huntsman’s plans:

It’s worth noting that the Founding Fathers, who are near deities in some parts of conservative Utah, liked to knock ’em back. The tailgater for the constitutional convention included 54 bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, 8 bottles of whiskey, 22 bottles of port, 8 bottles of hard cider, 12 beers and seven bowls of spiked punch large enough that “ducks could swim in them.”

For the folks in the State Senate who seem unconcerned with increasing revenue or enacting the will of the people, this may be the way to go. Remember, Kansas increased its tourism revenue with liquor reform, and nobody has ever willingly entered that state.
