What a difference 21 years makes (or not)

Back in 1987, this was kind of a tribute to the indulgences of the haves vs. the have-nots.  Though Wild Turkey still retains its position as a super-premium bourbon, were ad were run today -- given the modern influence of the health police and eco-cops -- it would end up as more of an indictment of the arrogance of the care-nots vs. the carers.   I guess The Good Life just ain't what it used to be.

New posts every weekday.  See you tomorrow.
