Booze on Planes, Trains and Boats

Moorestown is asking voters if they want to allow liquor sales in the town, but NOT on planes, trains and boats. Huh?

Booze on Planes, Trains and Boats

The Moorestown Mall wants to let diners buy drinks through a ballot question that mystifyingly refers to planes, trains, and boats. At the owner´s Cherry Hill Mall, Seasons 52 employee Dan Cestare gets wine.

Moorestown is asking voters if they want to liquor sales in the town, but NOT on planes, trains and boats.  Automobiles are NOT mentioned, though it rolls off the tongue thanks to a film starring Steve Martin and the late John Candy.   

What does this ballot question mean?  Can they stop Mojitos from being served on planes flying thousands of feet above?  People are scratching their heads over this one.
