	In a perfect demonstration of bourgeois capitalist logic, the
Canadian courts have just paved the way for hard liquor advertising to
return.

	The argument was that since beer and wine were still being
advertised, it was 'discriminatory' to ban hard liquor ads..!!

	OBVIOUSLY the REAL solution would be to ban 'em all -- but then
the Seagrams mafia has the Liberals in their pocket and I don't...

	Phillip Morris can't be far behind...
