A concerned citizen asked his local Senator about his attitude towards whiskey. He received the following reply :
'If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it. But if you mean the elixir of a New Year toast, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little sick children, then I'm for it. This is my position, and I will not compromise.'
