Moonshiner Tribute in Virginia

The Virginia Historical Society (the above is completely unaffiliated) is paying tribute to its underground booze heritage by an exhibit titled "Moonshining in the Blue Ridge." The Daily Press had a great piece on it today and I encourage you to follow the link and watch the video. What I like about it is that it highlights negative effect of over regulation (look at how many gallons of hooch were being produced!! during the so-called ban.) If conservatives like good folk at the VA Historical Society can come to understand this, maybe there is hope for a rationalization of of current liquor distribution system.
