If You Think It Sucks Dallas Can't Buy Liquor on Sundays (And Especially This Sunday) ...

... imagine how the people who sell it feel. Actually, no need to imagine it: The D.C.-based Distilled Spirits Council of the United States issued a press release today demanding the state of Texas drop its "outdated law banning Sunday liquor sales," especially considering the many millions in tax revenue left on the table during a billions-o-dollars budget crunch where every penny counts. Says Dale Szyndrowski, vice president of the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (whose website makes me very thirsty), in the release:

"This is a huge missed opportunity for the state. Thousands of tourists from Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are already accustomed to Sunday liquor sales. They're going to be shocked when they arrive in Dallas and find the doors closed on Sunday. Texans, whether you're cheering for the Packers or the Steelers, if you're hosting a party and forget to buy tequila for your margarita before Sunday -- you're out of luck."

Preach it, brother. You're now free to visit the council's "cocktail corner."
