That's fantastic. Bummer about the pay-per-view thing.

"New York, Sept. 30. -- Today is the beginning of the end of absinthe drinking in the United States. The order prohibiting the importation of absinthe into this country went into effect at midnight. There isn't enough of the little green dragon left to supply New York two months. No more can be imported and no more can be sold in interstate commerce."

It's been a lot of fun looking up theese article bits. Way too much fun. I should get to work.

Very cool.

Most articles appear to be $4 a piece or $1.20 for 25 (when buying from the washington post).

Interesting headline,
"ABSINTHE TO MAKE SHELLS.
Liquor, Forbidden as Beverage, Now Used in Explosives."
1915
Perhaps the czech fire ritual does go back further than we think.
(Just think of how much vintage they launched away)

Bummer that some of the sources were pay-per-view. I did find some for free that I had been looking for, though. Thank you for that.
