A toast to go gay couples, but not liquor privatization?

A clearly elated gay couple tied the knot last night on the steps of the Art Museum in Philadelphia.

I am happy for them.

Pennsylvania is finally emerging from the dark ages.

Same-sex couples are expected to be married across the state starting today, since most couples had to wait three days after getting their license to be married.

So here is my question, now that we are so boldly enlightened and entering into this new era.

Do you think there's any chance that I might be able to buy a six-pack of beer and a bottle of wine in the same store? I guess this age of enlightenment only goes so far.

Not exactly the same thing, I will admit. And likely not nearly as important. But it is also something most people in this state have wanted for a long time. Unfortunately, I don't see it happening anytime soon. That's because this issue involves jobs and money, something that makes politicians move at a glacier's pace.

Maybe someday, but for now I will continue to make three stops or more to get my Memorial Day provisions.

When I go to Kroger's in Shelbyville Indiana with my parents wine, beer and spirits are in the grocery store and can be sold Monday-Saturday with ID.
