    Move over pizza and Chinese food delivery, how about a case of beer?  The Prince George's County liquor board is considering giving residents the option of liquor delivery straight to their door.

    The proposal would allow residents to place a call to their local liquor store for beer, wine and alcohol to be delivered. The proposal would require the person who placed the order to show their I.D. when the delivery arrived.

    Maryland governor Martin O'Malley recently signed new laws allowing direct shipments from wineries to Maryland homes.  But Laurel's mayor, Craig Moe, told the Washington Examiner he may try to block liquor deliveries in his city. 

    "We have problems enforcing the current laws now, with kids and minors able to get into stores and get alcohol," he said.  "My gut feeling is I just don't think this is right."

    There's a public debate June 28th at a liquor board meeting.
