  •  Is there even a temperance movement today? (2+ / 0-)

    Yes there is.

    And there are whole dry towns where alcohol/alcoholism is such a scourge that the most common criminals are those who smuggle alcohol or make home brew.

    See also, Seward Peninsula Alaska where alcohol interdiction reduces accidents, domestic violence and murder.

      I was exposed to blue laws, dry counties, ABC stores, etc growing up, my better half wasn't.

      The first vacation we took together after college was to camp/hike/check out Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.

      Mammoth cave is surrounded by blue counties.  I understood what that meant.  She didn't.  One night after a long hike she had a bad taste for a beer.  I told her we'd have to drive for three hours to get her one, she didn't believe me or understand, it was almost out first fight!  After we drove up and down the interstate for an hour or so, stopping at every gas station exit and her asking the attendant where the beer cooler was, she finally understood.  It was a quiet drive back to the campsite.

      •  Good on her for making you prove it! ;) nt (0+ / 0-)
