Sadly he's dead now. Yes, dead as in gone, murdered, pushin' up daises and all because of some guy by the name of George Wilson, i mean really...come on. Anyway all of you party goers ( you know who you are ) better find something else to occupy your Saturday day nights because the parties are over, finished, terminated like the end of a bad poem.

The Man who was Gatsby...

Jay gatsby, a war hero and a self made millionaire and apparent god, had lived in the west egg for only a short period of time. The man threw parties that almost anyone reading this have probably attended, but only a few were lucky enough to even know if Gatsby was real. Today the world has likely lost the most interesting man to ever live, and surely his name will live throughout time.

Prohibition...

As we all know, alcohol everywhere has been banned at the beginning of this year, and the results of that are astonishing. The government first put bans on alcohol for many reasons, one of the most talked about reasons being that drunk men would come home and beat their wives. The Wartime Prohibition Act took effect June 30, 1919, with July 1, 1919, becoming known as the "Thirsty-First". The attempt to decrease the "evils" of alcohol actually created more, and new, types of crime.

One thing that people don't realize is how many people wanted to ban alcohol, even before it was banned nationally. Prior to the national ban, individual states had passed local bans, and by 1916, 26 of the 48 states banned alcohol. But with the ban, people still drink alcohol and began finding new ways to obtain it. There are now underground bases set up for alcohol sales and alcohol making. People have been hurt and killed over this crisis, and many think the bans will end soon.
