Easy Alcohol In Waukesha More Than A Minors' Issue

The Journal Sentinel soft-pedaled concerns over the City of Wauakesha's permission for beer sales at gas stations.

Curiously, the editorial said that yes there were problems with minors' use of alcohol and driving - - but the issue isn't confined to minors. Plenty of adults are abusing alcohol and getting behind the wheel in Wisconsin and in Waukesha County, too.

This is going to come back and bite Waukesha. For the convenience of some convenience store owners, and some drivers who will now be able to crack open a beer behind the wheel with one fewer-stop.

Short-sighted is an understatement here.
