You'll still have to take a Sunday drive to buy boozeGovernment logic. Now there's an oxymoron* if there ever was one. Kinda reminds me of this ditty.
If Southwest Virginians want to shop at an ABC store on a Sunday, they need to drive to Richmond. Gov. Kaine signed off on a bill that allows state liquor stores to open on Sunday in any city with a population of 100,000 or more. This benefits Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads and Richmond. Folks living in the rest of Virginia are out of luck.
It's hard to figure the logic behind the 100,000-citizen threshold. If it has to do with staffing stores that are projected to have too few customers to support them, then don't open all of them.
This is a blue law relic that needs to be abolished. (link)
There is a correlation, fellas.
