I'll drink to that!

Just four years after noticing that Prohibition was over for the rest of the country and belatedly legalizing the sale of beer, wine and liquor within the city limits, Athens, Alabama, faced the possible reinstatement of a ban on alcoholic beverages. Fortunately, the forces of all that is good and right in the world prevailed and Athens voters kept booze legal by a 68% to 32% vote.

Of course, the right to buy, sell and consume anything shouldn't be subject to the whims of the majority, but we'll take any victories we can get.

The only folks mourning today are bluenoses and bootleggers.
