This Bud's for Belgium
I'm pretty sure I'd have the same opinion even if I liked Budweiser. But the minor furor around the takeover bid by InBev of Belgium (Stella Artois, Becks) to buy Anheuser Busch, including a couple of local politicians suggesting they might find some legal way to block this furrin takeover of an "American icon" is just ridiculous. Properties should be free to be bought and sold without government interference.
