How Much Land Does a Man Need?

I was in my local Smith's grocery store and gravitated over to the beer section. Nice selection for a grocery store, with Odell IPA, Ska Modus Hoperandi, Stone varieties, etc. But damn, looks like AmBev is now the "Official sponsor of Smith's beer section!" or something. Look at how much space that Bud Light is getting. I understand that it is America's number one selling beer, but save a little room for my Four Loko and Tequiza. How does Premier Distributing have the manpower to stock that much of their product in that many stores in town? I envision a 24 hour a day chain gang scenario where Premier has the entire population of Los Lunas as slaves in the freezing cold and snow, loading case after case of Bud Light into trucks.

Ok, this is just plain wrong. But they can't be stopped. Bud Light is now being sold as a "Micro brew". Whatever you say, masters! Any attempt to rebel will result in deportation to St. Louis to work at a bottle-washing facility. I'm nervous just writing this...and why is there a herd of Clydesdales coming down my street???
