State Contributes to Church Hill's Ails 

A rough neighborhood? Duh! I live less than a block away from Church Hill House and have argued unsuccessfully against the proliferation of ABC licenses in the immediate environs ("Cat Among the Pigeons," News & Features, Aug. 16).

In the seven city blocks where Church Hill House sits there are seven stores that sell alcohol — and one of these is the state-owned ABC store.

Now, just takin' a guess, but do you 'spose there might be some connection between the eagerness with which the state of Virginia makes booze available and the level of violence at Church Hill House and the rest of the neighborhood? Huh, huh, huh?
