And There Was (And Will Be) Much Rejoicing!

On December 5, 1933, Utah became the 36th state to ratify the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution, which repealed the 18th Amendment and thus ended Prohibition.  As a result, December 5 serves as something of a holiday for beer enthusiasts, as well as fans of wine, scotch, bourbon and other assorted spirits.  One organization, the Museum of the American Cocktail, even has created a website (www.repealday.org) to celebrate this watershed moment in American history (well, maybe that overstates the case just a bit).  There has been no word yet on any attempt to secure a federally-recognized day off from work for this important anniversary, but surely this is an occasion to be marked, responsibly, each year!
