When drinking beer is made illegal, only criminals will drink beer

Bill Clinton got those two journalists out of a North Korean prison, the Lockerbie bomber is back home again and the Aung San Suu Kyi story just isn’t that sexy. America needs a new foreign trial to follow. Just in time for back to school, we have one.

Malaysia has convicted a Muslim woman for drinking beer. Her punishment is caning (of course), but she seems to have gotten a reprieve–or at least a stay. Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno is sentenced for drinking beer, but the punishment will not happen until after Ramadan.

That gives us time to organize protests. Remember guys, drinking beer is not a crime! If it is not safe for everyone to drink beer, it’s not safe for any of us!
