Wenn der Staat an der Autobahn Schnaps verkauft

Wo? In den USA natürlich. In dem Land, wo man 21 sein muss, um einen Tropfen Alkohol legal zu kaufen und zu konsumieren. Dort wo man in der Öffentlichkeit Bier in eine braune Papiertüte verpackt saufen muss. Und dort, wo DUI (alles über 0.0 Promille) mit schmerzhaften Strafen geahndet wird:

New Hampshire’s got their state motto on the license plate wrong: Live Free or Die. It ought to read Live Free and Die. Just north of Concord on I-89 there’s a highway rest stop. The primary retail outlet there is… the state liquor store! Yes, for some reason the New Hampshire government controls the sale of liquor. Puritan guilt?  Creeping socialism?  Who knows. Apparently some brilliant state wonk got the idea that they could maximize revenue by selling liquor to motorists. Now, granted, not everybody motoring up I-89 is an alcoholic, but surely some of them are. Maybe it’s a scheme to kill off the Boston Irish
