It's a remnant from another era, I guess. I don't mind having Virginia controlling the ABC stores as long as they run it well and make a profit from it. Otherwise, hand it over to the grocery stores.

Interesting article about Virginia (and other states) privatizing liquor stores in today's Wall Street Journal.

Whatever happened to the idea of Virginia privatizing the ABC stores? Is this still the plan?

Ah yes, another promise fulfilled by a Republican governor. Remember that car tax we used to have that that other guy got rid of?

Are you talking about the personal property tax? Still have it in Arlington County.

No, Jim Gilmore got rid of it, didn't he? Remember his "No Car Tax" signs?

So I guess the answer is they're still talking about it, but nothing's been done.

Gilmore was disingenuous from the beginning. He thought we were too stupid to notice what he was up to, just like he thought we were too stupid to understand the term "personal property tax" so dumbed it down to "car tax."

On the other hand McConnell is working hard on privatizing liquor stores and making good progress. He has built a coalition with Democrats and is trying to work things out with religious groups. You can't do things overnight under our system of government.
