December 5th, 1933

Besides being the anniversary of my 1 year-old son's birthday, it's also the date of the ratification of the 21st Amendment, the repeal of Prohibition!! Utah finally got onboard, despite the efforts of their most fanatical. Just as well, Pennsylvania and Ohio were late-comers too that ratified it the same day as Utah and their votes would've completed the 3/4 requirement (which probably explains why Pennsylvania's liquor laws are still so screwy).

So grab a drink, toast FDR and enjoy!!
