37837Re: BBC E-mail: 'People's vodka' urged for Russia
- Nov 30, 2006I found that article to be very interesting, and disturbing. I wonder
what the cost comparison would be here for a bottle of vodka? Where
i'm at, i can go down to the store and get a bottle of vodka for
$6.50. That is about the same price for a value meal at a fast food
place. A bum on a street corner can make that much in less than an
hour. The way i see it, if you can't afford to by a bottle of cheap
vodka, you have bigger problems to worry about.
