Ken Burns-- Prohibition

Absolutely incredible. Best thing I've seen by Burns. Covers the early prohibition efforts as well the 18th amendment and it's enforcement. Streaming on Netflix, and if you just listen to the audio while doing something else you don't miss much.

The latest, The Poisoners Handbook, about two pioneering forensic scientists in NYC, is incredible. Should be available online in a few weeks.

Liked it so much I'll probably read the book: http://www.amazon.com/The-Poisoners-Han ... 014311882X
