Something for the high-end barfly

If you’re prone to ringing in the new year under modification, there may still be time to pick up a jug of absinthe, which hasn’t been available to law-abiding folk for a century. MPR serves up an an article describing its return, which I must admit increased my awareness of the formidable beverage by 100%. Most amazing to me is that a previously controlled substance – one well over a hundred proof – could be freed from its shackles in this era, no matter the evidence. Our juggernaut of conservative moralists and overly-liberal safety cops must have been temporarily distracted. So I went over to Wikipedia for more of the story, and realized absinthe is a substantial topic. Maybe I’ll have time to read it in 2008. More likely, not.
