    As a Minnesotan, I must apologize for the unfortunate actions of Andrew Volstead, a senator from our great state who was lead astray in 1919 by the forces of demon abstinence. The Volstead Act shall forever be Minnesota's claim to shame.

    As penance, I have vowed to adhere to a daily intake of at least one pint of Guinness.

    Actually the drinking age was set by each state with 18 as the minimum. I was a bartender at 19 in Texas in 1980. Later all states raised the age to 21. Had a dram of Talisker tonight. Sorry Ern but after 80 minutes to get home I didn't feel like another 45-60 to meet you. I like the flying coaster in the photo.

    20 amendments before this one? What were they, Ern? No politics, now, but why is the 21st so important? And then, can we discuss how important the 2014 refrendum will be to the UK?

    Thank you for the explanation, I was aware of prohibition but didn't know that it started and ended with amendments to the Constitution. Thanks again now I know I will have another snifter.

    At the risk of being pedantic Eliot Ness was a Treasury agent and did not work for the FBI.
