White Lightning

Maybe it's just the fact that I grew up watching the Dukes of Hazzard, but I love reading stories like the one in today's RTD about Virginia's illegal liquor trade. Many folks in the more urban parts of the state probably don't even realize that moonshining is still going on here in the Commonwealth, but according to the RTD it is a $20-million a year business.

Having grown up near "The Moonshine Capital of the World," I know what a big deal it is in some places. This article is a really interesting look at the law enforcement side of the story. Trust me folks, there are no Roscoe P. Coltranes at the ABC.
