Politicians--Can you give a straight answer? Take a look at the article at the link. It concerns whether or not the state representatives in my area would oppose or support allowing liquor stores to be open on Sundays. This is not a complicated issue, full of policy nuance. Yet, consider the answers given by politicians. One person gives a history lesson and doesn't state her position one way or the other, promising to consider it if it comes up. [Duh!] She takes several paragraphs to do so. One person answers the question directly. [Yay!] Another person claims that opening liquor stores on Sundays would increase liquor sales by only 0.5% even though the days the store could be opened would increase 14.2%. She then criticizes other state's liquor laws before finally stating she would likely oppose the idea. Finally, another says she would carefully listen to citizens and give the issue thoughtful study. http://current.mnsun.com/2013/02/should-liquor-stores-be-open-on-sundays/ BTW, I oppose. See how easy that is to say!
