Oregon's liquor board loosened restrictions, allowing any state liquor outlet to sell beer and wine with the necessary licenses.

Agents won't rush to convert their stores, one local proprietor predicted. But Oregon drinkers can expect to see more options when they visit their neighborhood liquor store.

OLCC still refuses to import any of the traditional liquors of a fifth of the world's population. There are many Oregonians who would enjoy the sorghum distillates called "bai jiu" in China. For now, it takes a trip to California or Vancouver BC to buy a bottle of Mao Tai, Wu Liang Ye or the delightfully incendiary Hong Xing Er Guo Tou Jiu. Do we really need this restrictive blue-law holdover from the start of the past century? End the OLCC.

Thank you Oregon government! Will you now allow food at food stores, cars at car showrooms, books at bookstores, and human beings to replace governemt officials?
