Anti-Saloon League Museum | Westerville Public Library What was the Anti-Saloon League? From 1893 to 1933, the Anti-Saloon League was a major force in American politics. Influencing the United States through lobbying and the printed word, it turned a moral crusade against the manufacture, sale and consumption of alcohol into the Prohibition Amendment to the United States Constitution. Under the motto "The Saloon Must Go," the organization worked to unify public anti-alcohol sentiment, enforce existing temperance laws and enact further anti-alcohol legislation. At first, the League appealed to local churches to carry its message to the people. The League was able to promote the temperance cause by publishing thousands of fliers, pamphlets, songs, stories, cartoons, dramas, magazines and newspapers. How can I find more information? This website was created based on a large collection of Anti-Saloon League documents and artifacts, bequeathed to the Westerville Public Library.

Sarcasm « Grammarsaurus Rex What Alanis Morissette did with her song “Ironic” to confuse a generation of neon-fanny-pack-wearing, Legends of the Hidden Temple-watching, Surge-chugging, Third Eye Blind-listening, Topanga-crushing, Beanie Babies-hoarding, Duck Hunt gun-wielding ’90s kids, hipsters have done with their commitment to faux-irony to confuse a generation of … I don’t know, what defines us now? … people who miss living in the ’90s. What a mantra. … oh, really? [But dude, weren't Tamagotchis totally awesome?] Let me also say that I’m not really a fan of anti-hipster humor for this reason: it’s not funny or original. One very real problem hipsters have created, though, is a resurgence of a confusing use of the word “irony.” And hipsters, hear me: I do not ever want to re-visit Opposite Day. Opposite Day caused me my second true existential crisis at the age of eight. Let’s talk about irony. There are quite a few different types of irony: verbal irony, dramatic irony, socratic irony, historical irony, etc.
