Whiskey maker battles Tennessee drought

Okay, I'll quit picking on cap'n traders.
I won't speak to high-placed friends about a 110% tax on emissions credits profits during the first three years.

"A drought in Lynchburg, Tenn., is putting the production of legendary Jack Daniel's whiskey at risk. The spring used to craft Jack Daniel's may dry up..."

From USA Today

UPDATE: Never Mind.

"As most savvy drinkers are by now aware, Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 is no longer with us."

"It has been knifed in the back by the greedy corporate clowns at Brown-Forman, the conglomerate that bought the Jack Daniel distillery in 1956. Mr. Daniel’s once excellent whiskey began life as a 90 proof liquor, but about 17 years ago the proof was lowered to 86. Now it has been lowered again, to a timid 80 proof. America’s best bourbon is now a ghost. "

From Modern Drunkard Magazine

Cap-and-trade is the spawn of Satan.
(see T3 tax below for one way we might go)
