Greenwich Time refers today to “anti-prohibitionists” who used to run booze up my creek and stash it at what is now Dot McCullough’s boat house. Didn’t we used to call these folks “rum runners”? More colorful and far more accurate: I’m pretty sure that the criminals were very much in favor of Prohibition, because it enabled them to make huge, albeit illicit fortunes – just ask Joe Kennedy.
By the way, I hate using Greenwich Time’s website because of the pop-up ad for Greenwich Hospital that floats across the screen, blocking access to the main article. I don’t know how much the paper is receiving for this ad, but I’d think the cost of reader annoyance exceeds the fee.
