Happy 75th, 21st Amendment!

Today marks the 75th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment (aka every college kids’ favorite constitutional amendment) which repealed the 18th Amendment ban on the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol for consumption – aka prohibition.

For those of us in the Bay Area, KQED’s Forum had a great segment on this morning about San Francisco during prohibition (listen below).

Here’s to another 75 libation-filled years – Cheers!
