Here's a link to the CNBC documentary. Wine is on or about minute 21. I love how the lady says that in the end, she's selling a beverage. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1f6gRxwHGII&feature=youtube_gdata_player
NBC had a feature on Costco. The head wine buyer for the warehouse club is said to be the most powerful wine buyer in the world as Costco is the largest purchaser of wines and sets the standard on price. The TV special showed Costco's head wine buyer and her team in Bordeaux tasting wines from different wineries in the area. There was one wine she particularly liked so the NBC guy wanted to see her notes. She had written down "delicious".
What charges could be levied against a military commander in the field who, when his people came under fire, refused to send help and instead returned to bed as his people were massacred?

If you reach $8T deficit, you get a free ball. Just another $2T and I win the matching shoes.
Another vote for Point# 3. Reach out to mothers and tell them that if they elect conservatives in federal and local government, their children will have better education options.
I must be getting old as the prospect of a late night in town seems very daunting. Now, if someone planned a meetup during the day tomorrow, we NoVa suburbs folks would probably be more inclined. Please?
Do any of you take the free toiletries home? When we stay in a hotel for more than a night, we use the same bar of soap and pack the daily replenishment in our bags. Of course we end up accumulating hotel soap, shampoo, and lotion, which we never use at home.
For Ricochet members in the Northern Virginia area who have a lot of hotel toiletries – please consider donating them to charity. We have friends from Church who get together every year to assemble survival kits for the homeless. The kits are donated to the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network for its Emergency Winter Shelter. Please send me a message if you have toiletries to donate. I can pick them up anywhere within a reasonable distance from the Tysons Corner area.
Mr. K put up his memo on the bedroom wall 4 days ago:
Likely, 296. Optimistic, 319. If Oregon turns, then blowout at 326.
I have been praying for a landslide but will settle for any win.
Maybe he will receive an invitation to the Norwegian Nobel Committee and help select Nobel Peace Prize winners. The "what you say" criterion can be as important as "what you do".
We brought the yard signs in yesterday. Last thing we need is another headline "Romney kills more people in Northern Virginia".
Mr. K and I enjoyed watching both speeches. Both did a great job. I think John McCain's speech from 4 years ago is still one of the funniest. I still remember his line about having a great supporter on his side - Hillary Clinton.
Dave - You are a much better person than I am. You remind me that politicians are more than just characters in the public sphere. I have to admit that I have always had a negative opinion of the VP based on stories of how ugly he was to some people who appeared before him in the Senate Foreign Services Committee. And I think it was here in Ricochet that I read about the lack of respect the young Senator Biden showed to Israeli PM Begin in the 1980s.
But the same politician we dislike may also be capable of great acts of kindness. He may be someone's beloved spouse or the hero in his children's eyes. Thank you, Dave, for reminding me to be more charitable.
This Admin has already decided to make Clapper take the fall. He is an easy target. First of all, he is a Bush appointee. And he also had that problem in that Diane Sawyer interview a couple of years ago.
Mr. K won our bet. He said Joe Biden would be rude and condescending while I had said that he would not drop his veneer of civility.
Biden may have won some arguments and dominated the evening but I think he turned a lot of people off by being ugly.
