In an earlier comment, AE alerted us to something so important it warrants its own post: today is Repeal Day. I would have posted this much earlier, but I just read her comment and had no idea this fabulous holiday existed until now.

Repeal Day - December 5th

As has been said before, sometimes there’s a man… I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? Sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about Jeffrey Morgenthaler here – the man who realized that prohibition was repealed on December 5th, 1933 and decided it was an event worth drinking to.

Here’s to you, 21st amendment.

PS: Why I miss living in London.
