Alcohol_bottles_photographed_while_drunkAccording to “economic development” advocates, here’s what “catastrophically damaging” looks like when it comes to drinking in Utah: a few moments of awkward conversation about Utah’s liquor laws when a waiter has to explain to a customer at a restaurant that he or she must order food to get an alcoholic drink.

According to conservatives, here’s what “catastrophically damaging” looks like when it comes to drinking in Utah: a family devastated when a child or parent is killed by a drunken driver; a marriage destroyed when dad comes home drunk and punches his wife over a minor (or major) disagreement; or a life tragically shortened because a family member’s drinking led to cirrhosis of the liver or one of America’s 20,000 alcohol-related cancer deaths.

Which one do you agree with?
