Nowadays

politicians drink more alcohol, than a bootlegger made.

How timely...currently on my TV

is Robert Mitchum staring in "Thunder Road". Some say this activity is what spawned NASCAR but now we know it's brought us politicians of questionable background as well. Wink

Don't know what the big deal is

Probably half the population in Alaska, not to mention the states next to Canada, were bootleggers. Besides you can't pick your ancestors.

Speaking of bootleggers
Nunavut fights back at bootlegging trade

The Nunavut government is fed up with bootleggers making $10,000 in a single weekend and is moving to deal with the territory's crippling alcohol problem.

An effort to reform the territory's liquor laws begins today, but Nunavut's Justice Minister is already talking about sky-high fines for bootleggers, and legislation to allow the government to confiscate their homes, boats and snowmobiles.

?You've got bootleggers making $10,000 or $15,000 in a weekend; a small fine is insignificant to them,? said Keith Peterson. ?But if they're at risk of a $25,000 or $50,000 fine, or if you can lose all your assets from the proceeds of crime, that could make some of the bigger bootleggers think twice.?
