Links for 10/1/11

Christopher Snowdon has new book coming out, The Art of Suppression: Pleasure, Panic, and Prohibition Since 1800. His Velvet Glove, Iron Fist is fantastic, so I’m definitely ordering this.

One more vestige of Prohibition falls in California: Bartenders can now infuse their own spirits without fear of being fined by regulators. And in Oregon, the OLCC has given the green light to a temporary cocktail cart.

A dubious first: Denmark becomes the first country to impose a “fat tax” on foods high in saturated fat.

Every libertarian in the country has linked to this GQ profile of Gary Johnson, but just in case you missed it…

The US has now assassinated one of its own citizens without due process; why Obama is a disaster for civil liberties.

A nice write-up of the Transatlantic Mai Tai at Food Shed.
