In the midst of the Great Debate over whether or not the Town of Weston should remain “dry” comes one of the most priceless and paradigmatic comments one could imagine:
“Most people in Weston have their own wine cellars anyway.”
One must dig deep to comprehend the state of mind required to make that statement seriously.
Lest one believe this is unique, consider the comment of one Mary Parker, who opposes the effort of the one grocery store in town to devote a mere 400 square feet of his store to wine sales:
“To give up shelf space for wine doesn’t appeal to me. I think there will be less of the groceries I would want to find, less variety of crackers and pet food.”
A variety of crackers and pet food. To go along with that fully stocked wine cellar, perhaps.
