The focus is red wine and to get right to it without distraction, click The Wine Commonsewer Speaks. The rest of the enchilada is just enough of an
eclectic mix of commentary on culture, food, tax, and econ 101 to
distract from the focus on red wine.

Eighty years ago today the Bambino smacked his 500th career home run out of League Park in Cleveland where it landed in Lexington Street. Nobody had ever done that before and the Babe thought he might like to have the ball. Detective Folger helped him track down the kid who caught the ball and Babe, ever the gentleman, offered to swap a twenty dollar bill ($240.00 in modern money) and an autographed ball for the historic baseball. The boy was quoted in the paper the next day as saying, Gee, Ruth's a swell guy.
It is indisputable that Babe Ruth is the greatest player to ever play baseball. Had he played under modern rules his home run record would remain unsurpassed. Just the simple act of adding the 75 homers that were ruled foul under the old rules puts him in the top slot ahead of Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds for lifetime home runs.
Leaving aside his athletic prowess, Ruth really was genuinely a swell guy. Some of his modern day counterparts could take lessons.
