Padre Folklore: Ramps (wild leeks) (12) RE: Folklore: Ramps (wild leeks) 19 Apr 09

Back about 1962, according to old mountain legend, Jim Comstock, the publisher of the "West Virginia Hillbilly", (a newspaper published in Richwood, WV), mixed ramp juice in the ink with which the paper was printed. The paper had a number of subscribers in Washington, DC, and when those papers were taken to the local post office for mailing, the postmaster refused to allow them to go through the mails.
