"Prohibition... goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's
appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes... A prohibition
law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."
... Abraham Lincoln ( December 1840 )

                  Fed up with trying to move legislation, the White House is launching lawsuits to succeed where
                           legislation failed. The strategy may work, but at the cost of making our frail democracy even weaker.
