The price of modernizing alcohol laws


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.

Despite a recent state Supreme Court ruling clearing the way for a petition drive to go forward, its organizers believe a state question to allow sale of wine in Oklahoma grocery stores is unlikely to make the ballot this November. State Question 763 seeks to give the 15 most populous counties the opportunity to let certain retailers sell wine in grocery and department stores.

Wake in Fright

G'day, mate? Hardly!


Rod Lott
From 1971, Wake in Fright is a lost film recently and literally rescued from near-oblivion. While I can’t say I was familiar with it before its Drafthouse Films re-release, I’m glad it was saved. To have lost a work this good would have been a blow.
