SO LONG BOYCOTT
My personal boycott of Long's Discount Wines and Liquors has come to an end. My wife and I decided not to purchase anything from Long's when we discovered Mike Long is the Chairman of the Conservative Party of New York State. Granted we don't disagree with absolutely everything the Party stands for, but we disagree enough. So we stopped shopping there. Nothing earth shattering, but it meant something to us.
But one of my fellow alcoholic friends told me yesterday that Mike sold the business. I called over and, indeed, my friend wasn't too drunk. Heather Hamilton now owns the business. I'm not sure why she didn't change the name. Maybe because the store is such an establishment in the Ridge.
At any rate, the ban has been lifted. And just in time for the holidays.
