Preview: Prohibition by Ken Burns
Tonight at Intiman, Mr. T & I attended a KCTS preview screening of the upcoming Prohibition series by Ken Burns. It will be out on PBS in October.

Mr. Burns and his colleagues led a panel discussion after we viewed about an hour of clips. Fascinating exploration into the unintended consequences of single-issue politics and legislation. Bonus: lots of clips focused on the Seattle trade during this era. I didn’t realize Seattle was a such central character in the import/export business during that time, but it makes perfect sense now!
