Have a drink and enjoy this!

If you have not been watching Ken Burns' PROHIBITION on Public Television, you need to watch it when it comes on next. It's fascinating!

The first two hours, titled A Nation of Drunkards, covers the history of alcohol production, consumption, and the temperance movement from the 1820s to the 19-teens, when Prohibition is passed.

As always, Burns uses photos, books, and letters, to give a clear picture of one piece of American history.

Pour yourself a cold one and enjoy!
