Forget the economy, the on-going overseas conflict, the 80,000 out-of-work Iowans, and don’t even bother us with concerns about education.

We just want our alcohol.


Iowa Senator Rich Olive (D) said, “It’s pretty cool.” This just after a bill cleared a subcommittee that would allow Iowans to take home the last little bit in the bottom of that bottle of wine purchased with a meal at a restaurant.

Olive, after being allowed to take home an unfinished bottle with him from an Illinois restaurant, obviously thought that alcohol intake is utmost on Iowan’s minds right now.

Who says you can’t take it with you.
