Al Capone made a living off of one of the worst laws in American history. At one point he was earnings over 100 million dollars a year, simply by giving the people what they wanted, booze. But liquor discrimination still continues today despite the efforts of Capone and his crew. Today's bootleggers, college freshmen, have adapted the methods of Capone to smuggle liquor into dorm rooms, and themselves into bars, proving that people today have just as little respect for liquor laws than they have ever had.

Ah, college. For many people, those first four (or five, or six ... ) years you spend away from home, mixing school with a social life, are some of the best you'll ever have. Somewhere between teenhood and your adult years, you're allowed (maybe even encouraged) to mix a lot of pleasure with your business.
If you thought duct taping a garden gnome to the top of your dorm's air conditioner was a creative way to celebrate the holidays, you're right - it was, good job.
