80 years ago today alcohol became legal again in the United States. Truly a day to celebrate.
If one has a prognosis of death I say let that person take whatever, and try whatever they want.
If one wants to get paid and one is OK with suckling at the teet of the American taxpayer, DC is the place to do it. It is the capital from The Hunger Games movie.

In some places one cannot sell liquor on Sundays. The “Baptists” love this law as they hate booze. But the bootleggers like the law too, as without the law they’d be out of business. One could even throw in the alcohol cops (we still have them in Virginia) which also like the law, who don’t care about “demon rum,” or the artificial market which provides an opportunity to sell to thirsty customers on Sunday, but do care about keeping their jobs. So perhaps the theory should be expanded to include not only “Baptists,” and “bootleggers,” but also bureaucrats.

At least one Republican gave up complaining about Obamacare and decided that it made much more sense to mine the massive wealth redistribution program for a little wealth of his own.
The “train wreck” continues.
