    Re: Shutdown forces MillerCoors to pull beer from shelves

    ...over a trivial technical problem with a license.

    Notice the emphasis? Coors tried to pay already, accidently made out a check for too much, had to send another... for that they have to pull stuff off the shelves at enormous cost to the company? During a time when the economy is already wobbly?

    If I'm not mistaken Coors has to be USDA certified already, doesn't it? So the state license serves what purpose other than revenue-generation....?

    I think that the USDA license may be for their production facilities. And the state license is for their distribution efforts.
    But idk
    I may be wrong.

    As a resident of Minnesota, I must say that this would be the first time in the past two weeks that I miss the government. Apparently if this continues into October, Budweiser gets the boot too.

    I don't miss it too much yet. Until it's Labatt Blue. Then I'll be inciting a riot.

    I guarantee you that no beer would be spilled or wasted at a St. Paul Beer Party. Having been to a few of them, that is...

    Who said anything about spilling? That would be alcohol abuse. Instead, we'd get a bunch of beer together and drink it all.

    Near a river or something.

    .... so, basically like any other day of the week.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
