Only in America

A state liquor official in Utah is calling for restaurants that serve alcohol to cover up the bottles because some may be offended at the sight of alcohol. State law in the heavily Mormon state already mandates that bartenders work behind a glass partition, but liquor control commissioner Bobbie Coray, a nondrinker herself, says that on a recent visit to a Cheesecake Factory restaurant, she was disturbed to see bottles of alcohol in plain view. We have a dual responsibility, Coray told her fellow commission members. We are to make alcohol available to those who want to consume it and at the same time not make anyone uncomfortable.
