In regard to the recent Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board contract ("PLCB Consulting Contract Questioned," March 10): I am pleased to see some members of the Legislature speaking up in opposition to the courtesy contract. Let's not even worry about who the contract was awarded to. Rep. Dave Levdansky is right. We should not be wasting government money on something like this.
I mean, do we really need to spend over $170,000 teaching state store employees how to be courteous with people? I have a feeling if they made it this far in life, they probably can handle themselves OK on their own.
Besides, does it really matter if they actually were mean and nasty to the customers? It's not like you can just go to one of their competitors if you don't like the service. They've got that whole monopoly thing going for them. You're kind of stuck with them.
