|Studio One features beer tax, comic book creator|
Learn why some feel a tax on beer may be a good idea on the next edition of Studio One on Channel 3 in Grand Forks. About 90 percent of alcohol consumed by underage youth in the United States is through binge drinking. One nationally active student group, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), is petitioning for a beer tax in North Dakota. The group hopes the tax will help reduce binge drinking, while the revenue generated will help with educational efforts. Hear more about this topic on Studio One.
Also on the show this week, hear from the creator of the comic book series “Zot!” Cartoonist Scott McCloud began creating comic books in the 1980s; however, he is best known as a comic theorist. McCloud has written several books about the definition, history, and vocabulary of comics. Hear from McCloud about his work on the next edition of Studio One.
