Letter to the Editor: I Voted To End Madison DryAug 23rd, 2012 | By Submitted | Category: Letters To The Editor
Madison County people are as smart and discipined as people in the rest of the United States. The Madison Yes objectors expressing their fears in statements and signs are selling short the people who keep themselves and their children off drugs and behave themselves drinking beer at backyard barbecues. People who do not drink and fear alcohol besides beer evidently do not know people who enjoy wines as well as a mixed drinks on occasion. Madison citizens can use alcohol in moderation as successfully as they use automobile speed semsibly.
Another reason I voted FOR is that I despise hypocrisy and wilful blindness. Objectors say nothing about the alcohol sold here in umlimited amounts of beer at groceries. Worst, gas stations sell beer, too. Beer can addle the brain, interfere with safe driving, prompt family altercations and lead to addiction through a pattern of abuse. Attack the legal sale of stronger spirits and ignore beer sales? That is hypocritical and not logically defensible.
