Quotable.

Byline: The Register-Guard

From an editorial in The (Bend) Bulletin:

"Oregon, like a lot of other states, doesn't allow manufacturers to sell beer and wine cheaper to big customers (Costco, Wal-Mart) than to small customers (mom and pop stores). ... This anti-competitive regulation is decades old, according to state officials, and is meant to keep big stores from slashing prices and therefore encouraging people to drink too much.

`We appreciate Salem's concern, but adult Oregonians can figure out for themselves how much they ought to drink."
