Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Yes, red wine. On that subject, the only piece of dubious advice I ever got from the official WC heart specialist, Ms Julie-Ann, is that, with respect to the health benefits of red wine, one glass per day is enough (Excuse me?).
Thomas Jefferson had different advice.....
I have lived temperately . . . I double the doctor's recommendation of a glass and a half of wine a day and even treble it with a friend.
Notice the key modifier. He lived temperately and his doctor was already a half glass ahead of Julie-Ann.
Okay, on the one hand you have a bright, articulate, dedicated health care professional that, hands down, smokes anyone in the medical trade that I've ever run across.
On the other hand, you have a bright, articulate, dedicated wine afficianado and all around freedom lover who just happened to write the lion's share of the Declaration of Independence and is the semi-official Patron Saint of classical liberals* everywhere.
Julie-Ann is tall, thin, and blond. Jefferson was tall, thin, and a red-head. Julie-Ann is vibrant and alive. Thomas Jefferson long ago assumed room temperature (mulch temperature?). Oh I'll get emails on that.
It's really a tough call but TWC has gotta go with Jefferson.
Or get a bigger glass.
