Re "'In God We Trust' license plates may soon come to Utah" (Tribune, Oct. 24):

If some people in Utah can choose to have a license plate with "God Bless America" upon it, then others in Utah should be able to choose to have a license plate saying, "Drink More Wine."

Both of these expressions will offend someone, and Utah law expressly forbids license plates that offend others, but what's good for the believer is good for the drinker.
