Earlier Booze Two Days a Year

You are probably well aware that as it stands now Chicagoans must wait until 11 a.m. to purchase liquor on Sundays. Read the Sun-Times article that would change that time to 8 a.m., but only when Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve falls on a Sunday.

I’d like to take a minute to thank the City Council for thinking about our time constraints around the holidays. That’s very nice of you! Here’s my suggestion. If you are going to take the time to discuss this issue, just make it 8 a.m. every Sunday. We’re busy every weekend, not just on the holidays.

    Be grateful that you can buy liquor at all on Sunday. Here in Atlanta you cannot buy any alcohol on Sunday.

    I was going to post some more City Council time-wasting moments, but I found way too many of them :)

    Then again, I am posting from work.

    In related news, Aldermen make a lot more money than I do.

    PS: I forgot the obligatory Sun-Times Chicago politics catch phrases:

    We broke the hired truck story!

    Clout!
