I agree with my friend Roy Exum that it is frustrating having to wait two years until the, "wine in grocery stores," law goes into effect. However his criticism of the current Legislature is misplaced in my opinion. The overwhelmingly majority Republican Legislature should be credited with finally passing a bill that most Tennesseans support.
The Democrats have controlled the Legislature since after Reconstruction until very recently and they were the ones who did not have the courage to stand up to the liquor store lobby.
We didn't get a perfect bill but let's at least give credit when deserved.
