What locals have to say about the liquor system

Posted: July 27, 2011

Whaddaya think about Pennsylvania's liquor system?

"This is a totally crappy system. It's so Puritan. To get beer around here, you have to walk so far, like 12 blocks. It's not like it's Prohibition."

"To me, the current system is working. I just see that [selling alcohol in super- markets and other stores] causing more problems."

Milton Dillard, 53

"It's terrible. The government should not be in the business of selling alcohol. What century are we in? Conservative, religious, Amish - I don't know what it's from."

Matt Sandler, 33

"I don't see anything wrong with [the current system]. I got too many other things to worry about."

Bob Landy, 74
