  1. John D.:
    —I found that Ken Burns series on Prohibition a fantastic look into what led up to the Volstead Act and how it wound up being repealed…and it ONLY took 13 years for the gov’t to figure out that it aws doomed to failure.
    —Prohibition WAS a crime, but only for those who were social drinkers.
    When the gov’t found a way to tax alcohol, that basically opened the floodgates for revenue.
    Funny how they love to keep RAISING the tax…yes, that IS a REAL crime.

    Good story.

    Roll safe (and have one on me) out there, boss.
