.....of the repeal of the 18th amendment to our Constitution, aka the Volstead Act, which made alcohol illegal, and would eventually lead to a fantastic television show on HBO called Boardwalk Empire.
Cheers to that!

It was actually yesterday, December 5. That's the day, in 1933, that Pennsylvania and Utah ratified the 21st Amendment, which gave it enough states to become law.

To the original posters credit it appears it was first posted yesterday evening.

I'm surprised that Utah was one of the ratifiers of the 21st amendment.

From what I understand, Paul, there were a lot of people here who were very unhappy about that vote.

They were probably told it repealed the 19th amendment (women's suffrage), instead of the 18th.

Still amazes me that your great country banned alcohol.
