September is 'National Bourbon Heritage Month.'

And no, I'm not kidding since the US Senate made that official last year, with the bill reinforcing the 1964 Act of Congress that declared bourbon as "America's Native Spirit."

And since we Filipinos love everything there is that's even remotely American, then I suggest we all go out later tonight and, with lots of grilled red meat, toast to a bottle of Jack Daniel's or Jim Beam, or if you're feeling like Jim Morrison, maybe even a bottle of Wild Turkey, and celebrate everything that's American that we Filipinos love - like capitalism, merchandising, porn, the sheer joy of out-blinging everyone we know and don't know...

But please, drink responsibly so that you don't get drunk too much and start making excuses when you pass out, like George "Dubya" did. I mean, seriously, who chokes on a pretzel?!
