Is the title of an excellent piece in USA Today pointing to increasing frustration with antiquated, prohibition-era laws prohibiting everything from making real Sangria in Virginia to buying alcohol on election day in Idaho. And, of course, Free the Hops gets some ink for its effort to repeal the 6 percent ABV limit for beer here in Alabama.

Yes, Virginia (and Alabama, Idaho, etc.), there is a way to beat the old Baptists and bootleggers (today the bootleggers are called distributors) coalition. It happens when freedom-loving people band together, thumb their noses at the nannies and demand to be treated like adults, who ought to be able to drink whatever they damn well please.
