Talk of selling wine in grocery stores has been going on for a while, with Governor Paterson supporting the move as a means to raise revenue for our depleted deficit. Liquor stores may not be behind his bill, but who else amongst us doesn't want the convenience of stocking up on Franzia when loading up the shopping cart? Besides, Fresh Direct and 35 other states are happy to serve up wine with your groceries. Well, according to the Daily Politics, advocates for the sale of wine in grocery stores have taken to the internet with a new ad campaign.
A spokesman for New Yorkers for Economic Growth and Open Markets addressed the revenue-producing proposal, saying the sale of wine in grocery stores is "the answer staring everyone in the face." And as another wise man once declared, "Alcohol: the cause of and solution to all of life's problems."
