with silly & inconsequential politics.

There has been tragedy here, and I'm too mournful to rise to any bait. Look at this, if you can stand it, WARNING: Graphic, inhuman horror at this link:

Ed,

As hollow as this sounds, there will be others. Might I suggest a nice bottle of Van Winkle to soothe your frayed nerves.

Ed lies bloated and sobbing in the crick.

Ed, take a vacation west and I'll buy. We'll put on a world-class bender, my friend.
Will there still be NOS Jim Beam availableOldEdScott

out there? Old Ed asked hopefully.
Ever been to the San Diego MCRD Exchange liquor store?sn69

It's world class, easily. If you can tolerate a bunch of barking Marine recruits (God bless 'em) in your sensitive state, you can find single barrel bourbons a-plenty, including some fine fire water from Jim and his progeny Booker.
Booker T and the MGs?? OUTSTANDING! nmOldEdScott

the 19,000 barrels destroyed accounted for only 2% of their aging stock. so it looks like there's still plenty out there.

Normally when somthing like this happens, I would drown my sorrows with a bottle of Jim Beam. Is there any left??? I do not know what to do????

Fires and such have decimated stocks of the good stuff, off and on since time began (?!)

800,000 gallons isn't as bad as it seems. It just makes the remains of that bottle you have much more valuable. Better quick go down and get a case to cover all eventuality.

I can't figure out why they have no containment dikes to prevent environmental damage.

I (have heard) of experiments using Humboldt finest soaked in 190 proof grain for a few weeks. This would appear to be a good call for having your cake and eating it too. I understand it to induce quite a 'situation' in the imbiber.

Ed:

What can one say to a friend at a time like this? Words cannot express my grief, which all of us Jim Beam addicts share with you. Just know that you are not alone.

Courage, comrade!
