This is a Cool Story

It's about a nice lady in Kentucky recently passed away at the age of 101. Apparently, she spent her life bootlegging moonshine to support members of her family and community. She was arrested hundreds of times and juries (via jury nullification) refused to put a good woman in jail. Finally, the government stopped trying to prosecute her - and, alarmingly, society didn't completely fall apart.

Perhaps we don't need the government as much as they would have us believe.

Best part of that article is the quote "She sold whiskey but never to anyone with a whiskey problem." I guess she had AA on speed dial so she can research a particular client.

Maybe she considered a "whiskey problem" to be a lack of ability to afford whiskey.
