That Isn't Very Much Money

I don't think the state should have been in the liquor sales business, and the sales and enforcement operations shouldn't be housed in one agency, but given that it is in the liquor sales business I'm not sure it's really worth selling it all off for a mere billion and a half. People have decent careers that will disappear.

If I ran the zoo, I'd follow the New Hampshire model. Make it into an actual awesome retail operation, using monopsony buying power to keep purchasing costs low much more than they do now.
