Great State of California
5-4-3-2... just one more day to go until the state's liquor licensing laws roll back to their pre-war state. Yep, it's nearly 6 months after the end of hostilities, and despite several vain attempts by legislators to retain the time restrictions, from midnight tomorrow, bars and package stores may sell joy juice between 6 a.m. and 2 a.m., a welcome change from the 10 a.m. to midnight hours of wartime. So let's have a toast!
