Hello. Thanks for noticing my absence. I now write for Durham Magazine locally and Charlotte Food & Wine. Both are glossies that publish 6 times a year.
JSMT says none of the taxpayer's money is used to run the stores. Who else do you think is paying for upkeep, stores, employees and warehouses? It may not come DIRECTLY from taxpayers, but it's their money all the same. He also says we'd lose tax money if the ABC system were removed. Wrong! Ohio did it in 1996. They immediately saved over 31 million dollars on stores, upkeep, etc., and sales have increased every year for the past 10 years. If stodgy old Ohio can do this, imagine what a vibrant state full of well to do corporations can achieve.
