Many a good train of thought has been interrupted by beer. In 1966 I was traveling to Chicago from Urbana Ill Thanksgiving. The train was stopped in Kankakee for an accident. A beer truck had overturned creating a pond of brew, broken bottles and cans. The college students, ever vigilant for opportunities to give public service, quickly left the train to assist in the clean up. Mostly the unbroken bottles and cans, which were emptied and deposited in trash receptacles at Chicago’s Union Station.
