Thomas,
Short, sweet, and to the point. Very well done indeed. I will have to follow your friend's example and haul my butt up to the Finger Lakes and do a little tasting of my own.
Cheers!
James

Great catch Bob!

Thanks, guys.

Bob, what are you doing reading the Elmira Star Gazette all the way down there in New Jersey? You are a curious fellow... ;)

Too bad the local paper (Dundee Observer) that carries my weekly wine column does not offer it online. The columns are all about wine--not just local wine--and the publisher allows me to rail, wax philosophical, moan, scream, spread joy, spew hatred toward WSWA, dispell and even create my own myths, and on and on. Great fun!

"Curious" in more than one sense of that word, Thomas.

I do wish the Dundee Observer had an online version. Maybe if you, Robin and the Observer all agreed, you could post the columns on WLP so we could all enjoy your offerings.

I enjoyed your little piece I cited very much.

Regards, Bob

Bob, I chose the word "curious" for its potential interpretations...don't you just love the inaccuracies of the English language?

I knew you did, Thomas, and those multiple meanings add such joy -- and at times heartache -- to using English.

I've been thinking about the heartache because I recently saw a movie about Derek Bentley, the young man who was hanged in 1953 for a murder he didn't commit -- in part because of his ambiguous ""Let him have it, Chris".

I'd love to work that out, and if the Observer editors are skittish, Thomas might point out that quite a few other wine writers, including John Juergens (Oxford, Miss.), Richard Fadeley (Columbia, SC) and Randy Caparoso (late of Honolulu) have all persuaded their newspapers to share, and since I'm happy to publish a visible newspaper logo (and a link, if they have a Website), the donor newspaper has gained a significant benefit.

Of course, if Thomas is as sharp as I think he is, there's no way he gave over his copyright rights anyway, beyond first North American print publication, so permission may not even be an issue.

How about it, Thomas? I'd be delighted to archive your columns on the site.

Robin,

I am on my way to an appointment, but I want to say that I will look into this possibility and let you know what gives.
