I went down to the local K-mart today and was saddened to see a new edition to their store...BOOZE CITY!
“The saloon is a liar. It promises good cheer and sends sorrow.” —Billy Sunday
In the 1970's when I was a child in Chicago, I remember going to the grocery store with my mother. All alcoholic beverages in those days was sold in back of the store, and it was only sold in brown paper bags. This was done to be discreet, because our culture still had some innocence and blush, and adults didn't want to set a bad example for the children. Today in 2019, things have completely changed. I am not condemning anybody, God forbid, but I think it is tragic that our society has openly accepted booze.
“The normal way to get rid of drunkards is to quit raising drunkards, to put the business that makes drunkards out of business.” —Billy Sunday
