The pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC, Ready for Hillary, is getting set for the Democratic presidential candidate to officially enter the presidential race. This afternoon, the group sent out an email to supporters announcing a 50 percent sale on whiskey glasses, mason jars, and Champagne glasses.
A set of four champagne glasses costs $25, as does a set of four whiskey glasses. The mason jars are only $10.08 for a set of four.
The subject line for the email announcing the sale is, "Ready to party?" And though it makes no direct reference to Hillary Clinton entering the presidential race, it's widely expected the Democratic candidate will make an announcement about her future plans in the next week or two.

In my quest to write an article about my family vacation to Turkey and thereby write off part of the cost, I came up with an observation I deemed worthy of David Brooks or Malcolm Gladwell. It turned out to be dead wrong.

Pessimists who believe that once a large piece of governmental malpractice is in place, it is there forever and immoveable, should to pay attention to this day and, perhaps, celebrate with a cocktail.

When Prohibition ended in 1933, Pennsylvania governor Gifford Pinchot promised to make purchasing alcohol “as inconvenient and expensive as possible.” To this day, Pennsylvania has some of the most stringent—and absurd—liquor laws in the country. Beer and wine can’t be sold in grocery stores, and you can only purchase six-packs of beer at delis or under the counter at bars and taverns, and no more than two six-packs can be purchased at a time.

My before-dinner drink almost inevitably is a martini or a whiskey on ice. Despite running an online booze review site for over a decade and tasting nearly every alcoholic beverage known to man (and liking many of them), I reflexively return to these stand-bys.
Why? Well, habits are hard to break. And there is the matter of ease--I can whip these drinks up in a jiffy, which is important to a man who is perpetually exhausted. (I have two young children.)
However, I recently tried something entirely different--an Aviation cocktail, and boy am I happy I did.

The candor and plain speaking that have made him a YouTube matinee idol have made him a Scrapbook favorite too. So it’s only with the greatest reluctance that we draw your attention to an incident in which, perhaps for understandable reasons, his gift for voicing uncomfortable truths failed him.
