However, perhaps the most enjoyable thing has been to watch the zeal with which Steve brings Blantons to the heathens. It is, of course, the zealousness of one converted to the True Path (those of us who have been around for a while remember some heretical statements - #20). However, there was this troubling post:
I prefer my single barrel bourbon with just a splash of water, Will. And if you ever make a Black Manhatten using Blanton's, Jefferson's Reserve, or anything akin to these bourbons of the gods, I will hunt you down and give you the cane. Indeed, I ought to do so anyway for using bourbon in a drink that "should be garnished with a maraschino cherry."That's probable cause for a felony in Virginia:
§ 18.2-60. Threats of death or bodily injury to a person or member of his family; threats to commit serious bodily harm to persons on school property; penalty.Now, since it's a conditional threat there might not be a conviction but I fear that Steve will be arrested the moment a trooper or officer realizes who he is. I feel ashamed for not having warned him earlier and I urge you all to go over to Southern Appeal and make sure he knows.
A. 1. Any person who knowingly communicates, in a writing, including an electronically transmitted communication producing a visual or electronic message, a threat to kill or do bodily injury to a person, regarding that person or any member of his family, and the threat places such person in reasonable apprehension of death or bodily injury to himself or his family member, is guilty of a Class 6 felony.
