PROHIBITION LAWS SUNDAY
October 23, 1921 - United States

Another area that will need to be changed are the wages paid to prohibition agents (currently a prohibition agent is paid $145.00 per month) and the rum runners are offering bribes of $100,000 for them to turn the other way. If the government is serious about enforcing prohibition laws some changes and finance will need to be made available.

about Stolen On New Year's
More vehicles are stolen on New Year's Day than any other holiday throughout the year. (So does that mean thieves are having their last fling before changing their ways or are they trying for a big score to start the New Year?)
