The big July 17 vote to decide if the backwards county I live in would remain dry (no liquor sales) is over. The yahoos have voted to remain dry. No surprise in a place where churches outnumber all other business combined. And not the cool churches where they drink wine. No, catholics are looked at with suspicion here as if they were people of color or gay people. In case you're new to reading this blog, I don't find any of those groups of people suspicious; I'm talking about your average jane or joe from this county and a couple of the surrounding counties.
Do I sound bitter? Well, I'm not really. The next county over decided to go wet. That means I will only have to drive 20 minutes on the rare ocassions when I decide a beer or a bottle of sangria would be nice. Formerly the drive was an hour or more.
If you want to read more about this I wrote a longer blogpost about it here .
I see a pitcher of margaritas in my future. What about you?
