at to get the intoxicating effect of a six-pack, you really just need a "seven-pack.” If that’s the case, why don’t we just drop the whole stupid law and open up the competition? Isn’t that the American way? Turns out a free market is only as free as your political power, and the alcohol distributors’ lobby has clean-and-jerked control of who sells what in the spirits world. Lobbyists are in business, too, so you can’t fault them. Distributors are doing what they can to protect their business, which is as American as apple pie. So, what’s the solution? How do we convince law makers that in a world dominated by an information superhighway, a person ought to be able to get a Guinness after a long morning of church. Can’t we just get together as ladies and gentlemen to work this out? Maybe over a seven-pack?
