    Unhappy Nooooooooooo!!!!!!

    BARDSTOWN, Ky. (AP) _ Flames engulfed a seven-story bourbon warehouse Monday, sending alcohol-fueled flames more than 100 feet in the air. ...

    The company said the warehouse held about 19,000 barrels of bourbon,...

    More than 95 percent of the world's bourbon is produced in Kentucky,

    **sob** **sob** Hey, it's easy for you jokers to make fun. Bourbon is king in this state, dang it all.

    There's about 10 minutes of video from yesterday's news on www.wave3.com --just look for the link to the video of the Jim Beam fire. At the end they show some of the footage of the Heaven Hill fire in 1996; it was much worse and the video is unreal. Enjoy.

    I found this story in three different news sites this morning. :'( I did have a question though. I read that the whiskey had flowed into a nearby creek. I was wondering how many trucks went home with a "full load" onboard?

    All humour aside, it is a sad day in the neighbourhood when an incident of this type happens; my glass will be "carried" at half mast in mourning.

    Jim Beam was killed in a lightning strike yesterday, in attendance at his funeral were close friends Johnny Walker, Jack Daniels, Jose Cuervo and Yukon Jack, who said he flew in from northwestern Canada as soon as he got word of the tragedy.

    Talking Check out a Rumor.........

    Some who were in attendance at this horrible tragedy thought they observed an aberration in the water supply shuttle scheme. It seemed that undispatched tankers were arriving EMPTY and leaving FULL. Strange....... Stay Safe....

    No doubt the Haz-Mat team off-loading a Hazardous substance.

    Gentlemen:

    I regret to inform you that to the price of bourbon will now fluctuate in a manner similar to the price of gasoline.

    Long lines will form at liquor stores as we wait for the latest delivery of that amber colored elixir from the Great state of Kentucky (by armored truck I might add).

    It is truely a sad day.
