    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.

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

    They were probably told it repealed the 19th amendment (women's suffrage), instead of the 18th.
