December 5th marks the anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal in America. Having read a bit on the history of the United States, I believe it only fitting that today be celebrated. Without the rumrunners, bootleggers and back yard brewers, this nation would have become something altogether different. Whether alcohol is within your personal constitution or not, to be certain it is has played an unparalleled role in the cultural shaping of the world and ought to be recognized. In closing: Sláinte, Salut, Cheers, Prost, et al. Be careful and enjoy.
