POLITICS MAY DRIVE PEOPLE APART, but Bourbon can bring them back together. Though the superiority of Jack Daniel’s products remains incontestable.

UPDATE: Any mention of Bourbon seems to generate a lot of email. Yes, I know that Jack Daniel’s is “sour mash whiskey.” Duh. And yes, I know that they also make superb “sour mash” in Kentucky — in fact, I have a fine bottle of Old Weller 107 proof in my liquor cabinet.
