Liquor and Liberties


Montana's legislators refused to pass a law banning open containers of liquor in cars. "I think there's still perhaps some carry-over from people whose view is their individual rights are being trampled on," said Bill Muhs, president of a Montana chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving in the Washington Post. Wonder where they got the silly idea that their rights are being trampled on? Montana has already lowered its blood alcohol limit, lowered its speed limits and increased penalties for drunk driving. Why not just outlaw alcohol and be done with it? When will our national spasm of Victorian morality end?
