The ranks are thinning.


Posterity will record that on June 14, it was Matthew Myers who apologetically pulled the lanyard down in the alley by the trash bin and fired the health department’s opening salvo in the Great Beer Pour War of 2013.

Here’s to the foot soldiers of the world, and to the hope that in his new job, there’ll be no such pressure applied from above.
