    I heard this story on the radio this morning...the Kentucky Bourbon Festival made the Department of Homeland Security's database of potential terrorism targets (along with an insect zoo and an Indiana popcorn factory), but not the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, or the Statue of Liberty. Glad to see this administration is on the ball!

    I've already been blown away by tasting GTS! Being blown up by halfwits don't scare me...

    Imagine being killed around loads of Bourbon in a festival atmosphere - could Heaven possibly be any better?

    I guess good whiskey really does tickle my pickle!

    Homeland Stupidity strikes again!

    Of course, the Islamofascists and the Christofascists alike would just as soon see all alcohol vanish from the face of the earth... so maybe it isn't a bad idea to beef up security at the Bourbon Festival.

    (A while back, there was a brilliant "inapproprate ad campaign" Photoshop contest on Fark, with the winner being a depiction of the Kaaba draped in ads for Jack Daniel's and "Pork - the Other White Meat.")
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Why do you think we keep our bourbon in bunkers anyway? There are no teetotalers in MY foxhole.

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    What bothers me the most is that somebody actualy put that list together.

    Lets all be real about one thing. If a bunch of shady foreign terrorist-looking types (insert your own bias here) were driving around central kentucky, the good ole Kentucky Police Force will have pulled them over at least every quarter mile -- and every other trucker will have already radio'd ahead.

    To me, it's just a classic case of corruption in action - people see a BIG pot of money available, and will come up with any justification they can think of for a piece of the action.
