It must be odd that beer is such a large part of one's view of the world's ills that you maintain this sort of record:
The central Ohio city of Westerville, once known as the "dry capital of the world," is dry no more. A pizza parlor on Thursday became the first establishment in Westerville's uptown business district to legally serve a beer since 1875.Apparently, Westerville is the former headquarters of The Anti-Saloon League, a once powerful lobby group. Here is a site with some of the history of the organization.
What a grand thing to call yourself the anti-something league. I will have to think of one. The anti-medler league perhaps.
