Seems that a Federal judge in Texas has declared Texas' law on wine shipping -- which allows in-state wineries to ship directly to Texas residents, but leaves out-of-state wineries out of the loop -- is unconstitutional.
Another victory against the 3-tier tyranny!
(There's an article on the Wine Spectator on-line). We're going to make it to the Supreme Court very soon, and the Commerce Clause will be the wine lovers' best friend.

Quick, somebody find out what those Supreme Beings drink and put together a case--ship it to them of course...

Uh, yeah...the Supremes are stopping by MY house for a drink later this week. Yeah, MY house. That's the ticket.
