I Scratch Your Back, You Give Me A Reach-Around
Who says government can’t coordinate their actions?
Local governments, hard hit by the recession and a loss of tax revenue, are loosening restrictions at airports regarding the sale of liquor. This will help them better
fleece serve travelers who just need a lil’ sumpin’ to take the edge off before they step foot on that flight, and to help bury the shame at the violation of their bodily orifices they suffered from the TSA.
At the same time, FAA penalties for passengers stuck on the tarmac are spiking, leading to many more flight cancellations. This will fill those airports with a lot of passengers with time to kill and frustration that can be worn down with some nice tasty alcohol.
It’s win-win, baby!
