Politics and hard liquor often go together.  Just ask Winston Churchill.  

But closer to home and our own time, Washingtonians can buy liquor in supermarkets, beginning today.  The state supreme court narrowly approved a liquor privatization initiative yesterday. Can Oregon be far behind. Speaking of initiatives, it appears that the Oregon ballot may, once again, have lots of them in November. And in Salem, Gov. Kitzhaber introduced his new education Czar.

It’s a stiff political cocktail this week, and our political guys are ready to knock back a few.  Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst; he’s at the OSU Media Center. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian; he’s on the line. Click the audio link above to listen in.
