Countdown To (And Closing In On) The Anheuser-Busch/InBev Deal

Today the Justice Department approved InBev's purchase of Anheuser-Busch, subject to InBev unloading Labatt's USA. Read more here. The lovely and always-alert Harry Schuhmacher at Beer Business Daily, the deal itself may close sometime next week.

Why does my brain keep singing "Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go?" God only knows, because that particular song (one of my favorites) has NOTHING to do with this deal. But I am feeling just a wee bit sniffly about this moment. Sigh. Probably emotional hang-over from the election.

And yeah, yeah, yeah, I know the rest of you don't give a shit. To which I say: SOMEONE has to care. Better me than some random whoever, right?
