"When more than 100 Indians died after consuming illegal alcohol in the state of West Bengal, the first thing that the state governor promised to do was to crack down on the people who produce the liquor. But given the history of prohibition in the United States, it’s clear that crackdowns on alcohol production and consumption can often be counterproductive." [editor's note: Just as they are in America's second round of Prohibition; as they say, history doesn't always repeat itself, but it often rhymes - SAT] (12/15/11)
