And it looks like the voters finally delivered a resounding "frak you" to the liquor wholesalers and the UFCW — we'll be able to buy all manner of alcoholic beverages at the grocery store starting 1 June. It's not a perfect initiative by any stretch; stores under 900 m^2 aren't generally allowed to obtain liquor licenses, and beer still has to go through the three-tier fat cats. But it's still a solid blow to the rent-seekers.

So now that that's settled... Texas supposedly stands for smaller government, but Washington now has more permissive gun, gambling, and liquor laws. How about you people in Austin start walking the walk and stop subsidizing your wholesaler buddies?
