Edward Peter Stringham, a visiting associate professor of American business and economic enterprise at Trinity College, took note of state Sen. Tom Colapietro's arguments against Sunday liquor sales and proceeded in The Hartford Courant to demolish them.
He said in the column that "Colapietro seems to have fallen off the deep end on this issue."
Stringham said the senator, a Bristol Democrat, doesn't grasp that Connecticut is losing revenue because residents are buying alcohol out of state on Sunday. It amounts to millions of dollars in lost cash for the state's depleted coffers, the economist argues.
