"Fauquier's [county] Board of Supervisors recently passed a winery ordinance
that tramples private property rights and some fundamental civil
liberties... [The new ordinance] forces wineries to close at 6 p.m. and
prohibits sale of food -- something that goes quite safely with a taste of
wine -- unless the wineries obtain special permits from the zoning
administrator...The ordinance lists prohibited winery activities such as hot
air balloon rides, farmers' markets, and mini-golf, which assuredly threaten
the health, safety and welfare of the public.
It's for the children.
