About

In 1952, Noah S. "Soggy" Sweat, Jr., a Mississippi Lawmaker was asked weither whiskey should be banned or legalized in his home state.
To which, Soggy replied:
"When you say whiskey you mean the devil's brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, and despair, and shame and helplessness, and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it.
But;
If when you say whiskey you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman's step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, life's great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and infirm; to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it."

To the memory of Soggy Sweat jr, I hoist a shot of Jack.
For better or for ill.

This is a wee bit absurd... but... I knew you a long long long time ago here on gaia. I recently started using it again and earlier today I thought about you. I was thinking about how friendships change and evolve and we all grow up, and older, maybe a tad bit wiser. I was looking at all of my old friends and trying to see if they were still around and what they were up to. You were one of my first friends here. And I know we just stopped talking and interacting. And I guess this is my distant attempt at... "Hey. How are you?" Hope you are well.
