Another Ronnie Scott

The good people of Graysville (an exciting-sounding name, no?) in Rhea County, Tennessee, have been debating whether they should allow shops to sell bottles and cans of beer. On one hand, this would raise local sales tax, on the other it would unleash the Apocalypse. Or something. John B Carpenter of The Herald-News (another exciting-sounding name, no?) reported that:

Ronnie Scott was […] emphatic in his opposition. “I know the terrible disease of alcoholism,” he said. “The Bible says that if you open the door to one demon, seven will come in. We already have enough problems in this town. There’s a reason why they’re called sin taxes,” he added. “You need to look into that.”
