Duane Swierczynski to the Barricades!

After all, he did write The Big Book of Beer. HARRISBURG -- Just as Pennsylvania was threatening to crawl into the 20th century -- never mind the 21st century -- by allowing beer drinkers to buy their beverage of choice at supermarket cafes, two state senators want to kill the whole idea before it has a chance to spread statewide.

At issue is a handful of liquor license applications, now under consideration by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, which would allow supermarkets to serve and sell six-packs as long as the sales occur in sit-down, 30-seat cafes that are separated by a wall from the rest of the store.

You know, when I read stuff like this, I think about packing it all in and moving to Texas, where you can buy an oversized can of Bud in a gas station.
