Viewpoint: What's up with 'whiskey plates?'
I am always thankful when readers suggest topics to me. Ken, a reader in Hugo, asked that I write about Minnesota’s “special registration plates” which are sometimes referred to by the more colorful moniker of “whiskey plates.”
Have you ever seen these? They are a plainer-looking license plate that starts with the letter W. It is that first letter - coupled with what they mean - that has prompted their nickname.
