    The young un's probably like it. I know some 20-somethings that love all kinds of super sweet drinks.

    Re: Nick names for bourbons

    Back in my college days when we had money we drank JD black. When we were low on money which was most of the time we bought EWB. At the time we thought EWB was a cheap attempt to copy JD. We called it Jack Junior. Now I prefer EW over JD even though it is half the price.

    Yeah, and they (the young un's) love Southern Comfort too.

    Anything sweet, they love it.

    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
