I remember talking to this writer at the Washington Post a few weeks ago, but only just saw the article (published 9/24). She does a nice, in-depth job with the whole NDP question and I get off a few good lines. I think it's worth a read.
By the way, I'm mis-spoke about Pappy and Bill Samuels Sr being neighbors. Samuels lived in Bardstown, right next to Jim Beam (the man, not the distillery) while Pappy lived in Louisville, but they were friends. And I never worked directly for Brown-Forman. I worked for one of their marketing agencies.
The Nelsons and I are on good terms, despite my pessimism about their business plan. No worries. A lot of things I thought were impossible have happened in the last few years.
