Liquor bargain


Letters to the Editor

Kevin Burns
Regarding the Gazette’s Jan. 19 Commentary about Oklahoma’s liquor laws written by Bill Bishop (“Counterpoint: Paying the price”) and Roy Williams (“Point: Revise outmoded liquor laws”): Mr. Williams asserts that Oklahoma’s liquor laws deserve a fresh look.

Liquor store owner needs some cheese with his ‘whine’


Letters to the Editor

R. Cass
I must agree with Roy Williams (“Point: Revise outmoded liquor laws”) that discussions about such hot-button topics as expanding the sale of wine and beer into grocery stores are healthy to a free-market economy and should always be welcomed.

OKC Chamber CEO’S chronology is incorrect


Letters to the Editor

None
Williams is simply incorrect on his chronology. He stated current Oklahoma alcohol laws date to statehood 103 years ago. Oklahoma came to statehood absolutely prohibiting possession, sale, consumption, manufacture (and I think transportation) of alcohol: complete and total prohibition.

Quality control


Letters to the Editor

Brett Grimes
The idea that Texas liquor laws have a negative impact on selection and price in that state is an outright fallacy. Most major cities in Texas have robust selections in grocery and chain stores, and have thriving niche liquor stores with items the bigger stores rarely stock.

The price of modernizing alcohol laws


Commentary

Brett Robinson
Thanks to a recent state Supreme Court decision, Oklahoma voters will decide whether to allow the 15 most populous counties to vote on allowing the sale of wine in certain grocery stores. They will vote whether to “modernize” so-called “antiquated” liquor laws so that our daily lives will be more convenient. Some claim this will be an excellent job recruitment tool, up there with high wages and on-site Botox injections.
