Jason “Hell Hath No Fury Like a Drinking Man Scorned at a Hyatt” Willett (twitter handle, and I’m serious, is @RazorBacchus) is being paid handsomely by a liquor store just outside of Craighead County to tell Craighead County residents to keep the demon liquor out. His reasoning is that it’s for their own good or something. Willet tells KASU:
“Here in Craighead County, we have a unique setup of restaurants that allow alcohol to be served. We don’t see the reason to have to have liquor stores in the county, so we formed Craighead PRIDE to help educate the voters, and have that open discussion about what we see as a great quality of life in Jonesboro and Craighead County”.
1. Craighead PRIDE sounds like an LGBT activist group. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just a confusing name.
2. Unique doesn’t mean what you think it means. As in, it doesn’t mean “one among many of the same.”
“The conversations we have been having with residents across the county have been about how Jonesboro has achieved such remarkable growth over the last 25 to 30 years. We have a Chamber of Commerce that is very progressive that works to build our community. We have good infrastructure and we have a great industrial park and businesses and we have a great quality of life. When you look at our religious communities, our education system, Arkansas State University, and everything else, we have had the success without being wet”.
Poinsett Package Store is getting value for their money with this one.
Fortunately, Willett is at least not exploiting his step-brother’s position as Director of the Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Control Administration.
P.S. Can someone tell someone at KASU that, here in America, the full stop goes inside the quote marks?
