"Another moonshine still busted"

That's the headline on the local newspaper today. Note the use of "another" - this is the second one found since we've been here. It seems to me that it would be easier, cheaper, and well, more legal to just pick up your liquor at the store, but apparently the mountain folks don't agree. I guess they think enjoying homemade alcohol is one of the benefits of living in a small town (see post below).

I don't understand why production of moonshine is illegal. If people are stupid enough to burn their throats gulping it down, then they should be allowed to do so. If we can make our own Kool-Aid and martinis in the privacy of our own homes (or in camoflauged makeshift buildings deep in the woods), then why can't we make moonshine? Not that I, Dr. Cool Guy, would ever want to do so. I enjoyed how the newspaper article pointed out all the materials and procedures needed to make a still. Maybe they just need to move to a smaller town?
